VP Introduces “X16” Racing Fuel

An Advanced Blend of Performance and Economy 

SAN ANTONIO, TX  – May 7, 2013 – (Motor Sports Newswire) – VP Racing Fuels, a leader in race fuel technology, has introduced its newest blend—VP X16™. “Our chemists have outdone themselves again with X16,” said Jim Kelly, VP’s Regional Manager-Race Fuel Sales. “It’s a perfect blend of performance and economy.”

Designed for naturally aspirated engines, X16 is an economically priced option for two and four-stroke engines with compression ratios of up to 16:1 and for engines using nitrous up to 300 HP. “X16 offers the power and protection of leading 116 octane racing fuels for a lower price and is an ideal fuel for a wide array of motorsports applications,” said Kelly.

“For extreme nitrous applications, we continue to recommend the superior performance and engine protection of VP’s C16, NO2 or C23,” Kelly continued. “For forced induction applications, we recommend C16 or Q16.”

“For racers that are used to fuels like Maximal, they’ll really like X16’s performance and price!” Kelly added.  X16 is now available in pails and drums throughout VP’s extensive dealer and distributor network.
