C-11 makes the most power with my combo (dish 305). Tried them all!

I’ve used mainly C12 (now using supreme Sunoco) and it always worked well in my p/sa 94 caprice 265 car... I never tried c11...

I have (4) 5 Gal cans of C 11 that were purchased in Boise. If there's a Div 6 or 7 stock racer needing C11 for Mission or Woodburn I could have the fuel there. All 20 gals 300.00 $

If you have to mix fuels because of availability.
Are there any issues?

Can you run pump unleaded gas with the race fuel and be ok?

Dan, you MAY fail a fuel check if you have TRACES of unleaded fuel in your container.
So in answer to your question, no.

I run Sunoco Standard- 110. Ran some Sunoco Supreme- 112 and slowed down a .1 in eight mile. Tried the new Sunoco Surge (105) at bowling green, seems like it picked me up but have not done back to back and weather was a factor. Dished piston 305 2 barrel.

That happened to me at last years SportsNationals. I did not fail, but was noted it was flat. Tech offered to check my jug, but I remembered what had happened then over the winter when some non-ethanol was mistakenly poured in the cell.

Mixing fuels at an NHRA race is a No No. It will surely get you disqualified. Best is to always run the same fuel. I make sure I have enough fuel with me at all times. You cant always be sure to get what you need at the track. If you have to change for some reason make sure you drain the tank completely and then flush a bit of the new fuel through the system. This is the reason most run a small fuel cell in their cars. Makes it much easier to control the fuel issues.

YEAH I still have the stock tank.
Have an 8 gallon tank made and will install later.
Need to add a drain.

The warning about mixing fuels.
Does that include mixing Sonoco, VP dissimilar rating approved fuels?
