Q:What type of racing fuel is used?
A:Racing fuel is not used. It is automotive fuel that is flown in and air dropped at the several locations. In some remote locations, the fuel sits for months before being used. It can become water contaminated or lose most of its octane. Sometimes it is even ‘summer’ fuel or fuel that was originally formulated for use during the summer and can cause havoc in the winter due to lower vapor points. The fuel is provided to the racers by Iron Dog but at a great expense often times more than $8.00 a gallon.
