    Methanol is about £75.00 for 25 ltr, We were paying £120 something for 50 ltr's of control fuel in 2015 per meeting

    I can remember paying not much less per 5 ltr from Santa Pod many years ago. Why the need for expensive a formula fuel? What's wrong with 5*

    @Stealaway , Haha the official reason is to stop us using expensive high octane fuel (cheating) which is a load of bo.... because we had to go std engine's to try & keep the speed's down, so with out high compression the race fuel doesn't work, so a waste of money.
    But if we bought pump fuel the organisers wouldn't be able to cream something off the top of the race fuel suppliers :whistle: ;)

    We ran VP U4 for a bit, £4.80 a litre, but it was horsepower in a can , and it let you run compression and ignition advance that you couldn't get away with otherwise. Now we run Shell V Power plus, which is good enough for what we need.
