Default Rons

Will a Ron's flying Toliet work with race gas instead of alcohol ?

just a matter of tuning (pump, pill, and nozzle sizes). i'd call ron's direct and they should have a baseline for your application.

Yes but the tuning window is narrow, and my question would be why not run it on alky

David,
Wouldn't it need a different spool in the barrel valve so it is less aggressive on fuel delivery?

This is what i got from Ron's;


I don't recommend using a mechanical fuel injection system with gasoline for many reasons. In an injected application gasoline is best suited in the EFI arena. Sorry.

Wrong,Wrong,Wrong

Mopar you have a PM, the toilet will work just fine on gas, you have to have a forced induction pump such as a "0" front mounted pump, it's so easy to run you'll never go back to a carberator, and yes i run one and so does 2 other friends run them and no i don't work for Rons.
Injection is the simpliest system in the world to run be it a toilet,stacks or a hat, they are drop dead easy to run once you learn the basics. I've been running them for over 40 yrs, blown gas, blown alcohol, stacks, hats and toilet bowls.

go to rons direct....www.ronsfuel.com

monroe is only a "dealer". (kinda like biondo for digital delay.) i had my chance to deal with him (monroe) but choose not to for various reasons that are neither here or there.

I have had 3 rons systems (2 toilets and a T2) and will only deal with rons fuel directly for these systems.

enderle has "gas" barrel valves and systems so obviously it can be done.

Not a problem Mark, myself and the other 2 people i know with toilets run alcohol. but gas is not an issue/problem.
NOW i'm going to make you (maybe have less respect for me) I just built a 481" BB/C with a hilborn stacks injection that i setup for gas, here's the kicker, it's going into a 88 1900 lb tube chassis Dodge Daytona :P . I fully expect it will run close to 5.50 or better.
