Nissan GT-R on Shell URT 100 Race Gas = 100% Badass!

Well, thanks to Central Florida rain this is all the footage I was able to put together from this day!

Why race gas?

When you’re looking to make more power, one of the best ways to do it is to raise your boost and timing to higher levels–but to do this, you need a higher octane fuel. In other words, high octane fuel doesn’t necessarily make power on it’s own—it allows you to run more boost and timing that you can with pump gas and that’s what makes the power.

When you’re running pump gas, you’re very limited because if you try to run too much timing, you’ll detonate, which, of course, results in the death of your engine.

The solution? Race fuel and race fuel tuning. By adjusting your timing curve for 100 octane gas (which can be done by many companies like Cobb, Superchips, HP Tuners, Hondata, APR, etc…) you can reach your car’s true power potential safely. Part of the reason Shell URT100 is a great race fuel for street cars that see street and track time is that it’s 100% street legal in all 50 states. It contains no lead, so it’s safe even if you still have catalytic converters or O2 sensors (unlike VP fuels).

There are other 100 octane fuels available, but this one is the most consistent, and because it can be shipped directly to you in sealed 5 gallon pails or 55 gallon drums, you don’t have to worry about old gas or fuel quality—a huge problem when you buy race gas at the pump. It’s often been sitting for a long time, gets contaminated and in extreme cases can be even worse than pump gas.

Because it’s street legal, you can drive to the track on Shell URT100, make your passes, switch to your 93 octane tune, top off with 93 octane at the gas station and drive home—it mixes safely and completely with pump gas. This way, you aren’t scrambling at the track to switch tunes and make sure you’re running 100% race gas. You can run all of the 93 octane out, fill it with 100 and race knowing you’re protected against detonation.

Hopefully this has taught you something new! My Underground Racing Twin Turbo Gallardo is next up, but on the Shell URT Advanced race fuel! A 116 octane unleaded race gas…gonna be INSANE! Can’t wait for that this week.
