    racing gas-so many choices,which is right for me?

    i ran into a fellow racer he said torco fuel may clog or screw up a fuel filter.is there crap floating around that will do this in the torco mach110?i bought a bunch of the torco mach110.

    i have a 572 that figured out to 10.2:1 compression with a 275 nitrous shot right off the transbrake.what octane should i be running and what brand is the best bang for the buck,can some one shoot me in right direction.

    i live in south eastern wisconsin so dealer numbers would be appreciated!

    110 is fine

    Only way that Torco has anything floating in it is if you didnt buy it in a sealed drum from Torco. To many times do I see people blame stuff in fuel on the brand it is and not the people who pumped it out of a bulk tank into a drum. Not saying yours is that way but no matter what its always smart to filter fuel before going into a car no matter what brand.

    I think what you have is just fine. Heck, try 112 and see what it does.

    As for Torco, David hit it on the head. It is not in the fuel but the way it is drummed out. VP is over priced and the other brands repeat just as well.

    Put two paper paint filters in your funnel. Use once and throw them away. You will see any trash left behind. I also get them free each time I buy paint.

    Summit and I believe Jegs sells a nice one that has a removable filter.

    I buy my fuel straight from VP. Not a dealer, but the Southeast Region supplier. No reason other than they are just a few miles from my house. I filter my fuel through 2 filters everytime I pour it. You'd be supprised what trash I get even from sealed cans!
