I have a question about VP Q116 fuel??? What adavantages does it have over C116 and I was told it was imported but I haven't found and info on that.... I was also told it was an altenative for alcohol??? Is this true. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Just an inquiring mind wanting to know and learn something

I'd tune for and use E85 first- there's enough in it to run a lot of boost, and that's where I believe these fuels are aimed, at least in part.

Octane rating from 100 to 105.

E85 is an alcohol fuel mixture that typically contains a mixture of up to 85% denatured fuel ethanol and gasoline or other hydrocarbon (HC) by volume. On an undenatured basis, the ethanol component ranges from 70% to 83%.

Hope this helps some,
Eric

NEW! Q16
Q16 will work well in any drag racing or circle track application -- naturally aspirated, nitrous or blowers. Q16 is highly oxygenated, requiring a 4-6% increase in fuel flow, which will make 3-5% more power than competitive 116 octane fuels. Q16's oxygenation will significantly expand the range of air/fuel ratio acceptability, so performance will be more consistent and won't vary as dramatically with altitude or density changes. For bracket racers, variations in ET from run to run will be substantially reduced. This added fuel flow also effectively increases its octane by 6-8 numbers above its standard ASTM octane rating.
Color: Yellow
Oxygenated: Yes
Motor Octane 116
Research Octane: 120+
Specific Gravity: .716 at 60° F

What are you running now? How much compression?
I run C12 at about 14:1 and don't have any issues

vpracingfuels.com there is a tuning section that has a bunch of info on Q16
