VP Introduces Revolutionary New Fuel for 50cc 2-Strokes

Pre-Mixed “C50™” Offers Convenience, Substantial Performance Gains

SAN ANTONIO, TX – January 27, 2015 – (Motor Sports Newswire) – VP Racing Fuels today introduced C50™, a truly revolutionary racing fuel designed exclusively for 50cc 2-stroke motorcycles.  “C50 is the result of extensive testing with Cobra Moto, the premier manufacturer of 50cc bikes,” said Steve Burns, VP’s Founder and Director of R&D.  “With this fuel, the same winning technology that powers the top factory Supercross riders is now available to young amateur riders who represent the next generation of champions.”


“In a stock 50, C50 race fuel exceeded expectations,” said Phil McDowell, Chief Engineer for Cobra Moto. “In more than 10 years of testing 50cc motorcycles at Cobra, I’ve tried over 40 different race fuels and this is the first one that works.”

“C50 showed measurable improvement across all performance parameters – more horsepower, more torque and better throttle response,” Burns added.  “It also enabled us to achieve a consistent, reliable tune which was eye-opening, given that OEMs have told us they’ve never before had a race fuel for a 50cc bike that worked well every day in varying conditions.”

C50 is unleaded and pre-mixed with a top quality JASO FD-rated, certified premium oil at a 50:1 ratio, so no measuring or mixing is required.  It’s also ethanol-free, which prevents the damage that occurs with ethanol-blended street gas which fouls carburetors, degrades rubber and plastic parts, and goes bad after just a few weeks in storage.

C50 will work well in Cobra motorcycles and all other 50cc 2-stroke competitive racing applications.
