Whats the difference?

C85 vs X85

c85 vs x85

C85 will make more power than X85, and any other E85 blend in the market. In saying that, C85 requires you to retune your engine to suit the fuel. You'll also need to make sure your injectors can handle a 10% fuel increase, and are compatible with MTBE.

X85 is a more basic blend, it's cheaper and does not require you to retune your engine when converting from pump E85. But don't let it fool you, we've seen X85 make incredible horsepower and torque gains over pump E85.

Before choosing the correct racing E85 for your engine, you'll have to answer a couple of quick questions. What E85 are you currently running? Can you retune? What's your budget?

Choosing the right racing fuel can be daunting and get quite confusing, but don't worry we're here to help. Please contact us on 02 9723 4233 for further technical assistance
