Is Q16 appropriate for superchargers or turbo applications?

This fuel is the nuts for intercooled applications. We're seeing huge increases in these applications. I haven't seen any issues with detonation when they follow the 6% rule. This is richen your fuel system 6% over C16 (which is the fuel 90% of these applications are using now) and you should be close to the air fuel ratio you were at before the Q16. This is where Steve Petty (Dyno master) picked up 107Hp to the tire on a twin turbo 588 ci application. The Q16 isn't responding as well in non-intercooled applications. I recommend that in these few instances, you should stay on C16. Heck, most of these applications have enough HP as it is.

Use of Racing Fuel
in California
In California (as in other states),
leaded and unleaded racing fuel
is legal for use only in racing
vehicles, not on a public
highway. The only fuel sold by
VP Racing Fuels which is legal
for street use or non-competition
uses in the State of California is
Streetblaze 100 ethanol enriched
Phase III gasoline. With that one
exception, all of VP’s racing fuels
are only legal  for use in a
competition vehicle not used on
public highways. The racing fuels
may not be used for recreational
offroading or other
non-competition uses.
