FAQ

Can I use ETS Racing Fuel in my vehicle?

Our range of racing fuels are suitable for most racing vehicles. Our Fuel Finder will tell you which fuel is right for your specific application.

 

How do I know which fuel is right for me?

Use our Fuel Finder to learn what fuel is best for you.

 

Does it matter which racing fuel I use?

It certainly does! The chemical composition of our racing fuels differs from product to product, and each excels at a specific application. Make use of our Fuel Finder to find out which fuel is right for you.

 

Can I mix fuels?

We strongly suggest not to mix any of our products as they are fine-tuned and tested. For best performance, use ETS Racing Fuels as recommended.

 

What is Octane and is it important?

The octane rating is a measurement of the fuel’s ability to resist detonation. The higher the octane levels, the more resistant it is to detonation and/or pre-ignition. This indicates not how much power can be generated, but rather how much power can be generated safely. Instead of RON (Research Octane Number), make sure to compare Motor Octane Numbers (MON), as they stem from a test that more accurately simulates racing conditions

 

What should I look at when choosing a fuel aside from octane?

Combustion energy, vaporization heat and combustion speed are three important and related parameters to achieve high performance. An engine is an energy converter: from chemical energy in gasoline to kinetic energy (movement of pistons), then to movement. This conversion is performed by a combustion reaction.

 

For more information see our octane story here.

 

Can my fuels octane rating be too high?

The octane number is not a value of power. Instead, it lets you know how far you can use the high compression ratio. The high compression ratio will give you more power. In the case of a high compression ratio engine like those used in racing cars, a racing fuel is essential so you don’t burn the piston by detonation or knocking. From a chemical point of view, the molecules with the highest octane numbers are generally molecules that release little energy during combustion. The higher the octane number, the less energy you will get. Therefore, if your engine requires only octane numbers of MON 89 and RON 102, don’t waste fuel energy by using a MON 94 and RON 108 fuel. You won’t gain any performance.

 

 

How long will ETS Racing Fuel last in an unopened container?

ETS Racing Fuels will last at least 12 months in an unopened container.

 

How long will ETS Racing Fuel last in an opened container?

Once a drum is opened it will retain its initial properties for about three months. After that it will still be useable but will begin to lose a few percent of its benefits. Contact with air is responsible for fuel oxidation. To minimize the impact after opening a drum, store the remaining fuel in a smaller container with a minimum amount of air inside.

 

How long will ETS Racing Fuel last in my vehicle’s tank?

It depends of which fuel - our fuel dedicated for vintage cars will last 2 years in vehicle tanks. Other fuels may not be recommended to keep in vehicle tanks after six months.

 

How do I best store ETS Racing Fuel?

ETS Racing Fuel is best stored in a cool and dry environment, away from flames, sparks, embers, or anything that may cause it to ignite.
