With the abundance of GM Ecotec ™ engines appearing as the choice engine setup for desert racers, VP Racing Fuels introduced its newest blend—VP ECO95.   “Vapor lock is a huge problem for most desert racers,” said Bruce Hendel, VP’s Director of Consumer Products. “Our new ECO95 is the best alternative to using regular pump gas.”

VP ECO95 is an unleaded, oxygenated off-road racing fuel made specifically for Ecotec engines or other applications that can run low octane fuel.   With the fuel’s unique chemical properties, VP ECO95 prevents vapor lock in the extreme heat of desert racing better than pump gas and standard types of race fuel.

“Nobody else makes anything for this type of application!” Hendel added.  “VP ECO95 has already proven to make up to four percent more horsepower in these engines.”   VP ECO95 is available in pails and drums to distributors and dealers as well as trackside support at all SCORE, Best In the Desert, and other west coast desert racing series.

“For other types of off-road/rally racing fuels, we continue to recommend the superior performance of VP’s Late Model Plus fuel,” Hendel continued. “Late Model Plus™ has fueled numerous Off Road champions in SCORE, Best in the Desert and other series, including winners of the Baja 500 and Baja 1000."
