About how much fuel should I use per pass?? I had 15 gallons to start the weekend, 3 time runs, 5 rounds, and my brother made a pass and I have no more alky. 15 gallons in 9 passes. Is this alot or not? Car gains about 15 degrees from starting line to finish line, ran 4.89 off trailer then 88-90-89-88-90-89-88

Dunno about the particulars for your engine, but it sounds about right . .

Heat's OK, E.T.s consistent. It's a "Bracket car" . . Got any idea of what your EGT was? That'll tell you a lot when tuning an alky car . .

But I don't have much Eighth Mile Experience, and what I have is with a Blown 540" Aluminum "B" Mopar in an Altered . . So anything I come up with is probably a SWAG . . .

Personally, you seem to be doing pretty shiny . . Keep it up . .

You ran 8 and your brother ran 1 ... 9 runs for 15 gallons avg is just over 1.5 with warm ups ... thats about right.

Find a different tire !

I agree with David, about 1 1/2 gal per pass average if you're driving back to the pits. The 10/15 degrees increae is also about right i would guess that the tuneup is pretty much dead on. I burn about 1 1/2 gal per pass but we run a 1/8mi on a qtr track, so it's a long drive back to the pits and mine is a sm/blk.

Thanks guy's, I think the car will be deadly when I get that shake out of it. I agree with the tire change but thats all I had and I wanted to test. As far as EGT, I had the stuff ordered and was supposed to be here on Friday and it did not make it.

Hammertime, what tire do you recomend for this car with a 15" wheel?? I may have already ask you this, but forgot.......

What does the car weigh?

Y'might call Hoosier Tire. They work well and aren't super sensitive to tire pressure. I'm guessing that your original 15X33 config is in the ballpark, but they can get you the right tire size, and right sidewall . . Which, on lighter cars, makes a big difference. Has a lot to do with how the wall wrinkles and keeps all the profile on the ground . .

The d05 is to soft, you need something around a co6-co7.
