The fuel has to be on the approved list. What's the big deal? They have to have a known good sample for comparison. They need to know the specific gravity, etc. Pump gas is all over the place. If you have not checked that stuff, it is easy to understand you not knowing that. Those tech people don't have it all that easy. I have done that at a local series. I try to work with them, and not give them any crap. Just follow the rules. They did not write them.

Mike, a little Velcro strap goes a long way using the lever type valve safely....
