Racing fuels are blends of fuels different from normal everyday ULP, E10, LPG & Diesel. Although these fuels can be used in competition there are more exotic blends that give improved performance to competition engines.
Fuels such as Nitro-methane and methanol fuel used by Top Fuel drag racing, Methanol fuel used in some open-wheel race car i.e Indy-Car Series prior to 2007 and in Top Alcohol drag racing and Ethanol fuel & Nitrous oxide used by drag racing vehicles to increase horsepower, require specialised oils that can protect an engine through the extremes of competition.
Penrite Racing, Full Synthetic & HPR Engine Oils are suitable for use with E85 fuel in racing & competition conditions. If using in on road conditions, more frequent oil changes are recommended.
