A-8C RACING GASOLINE
Octane (Research Method)||>120.3|
Octane (Motor Method)||113.0|
Release per unit weight (bomb calorimeter)||19,683
Racing Gasoline is custom blended in small quantities with the highest quality
iso-paraffinic and aromatic blending stocks available. Cost is increased considerably
over ERC 110K.
tetraethyl lead (TEL) levels are set at the maximum allowed by the Surgeon General
at this time, and appropriate quantities of lead scavengers and deposit cleansers
are included. A-8C is highly effective in supercharged, turbocharged or
nitrous assisted engines.
heat values per unit volume and the capability of running leaner A/F ratios produce
excellent mileage figures in real world race conditions. Iso-paraffinic hydrocarbon
materials with high hydrogen/carbon ratios are used to optimize heat release per
alkane and aromatic compounds used in A-8C were selected with resistance
to detonation as the primary consideration. Extremely high ASTM Octane numbers
and absolute maximum resistance to heat and pressure characterize this blend.
The branched chain alkanes that comprise the paraffinic fraction exhibit the highest
resistance to heat and pressure known in petrochemistry. The aromatic fraction
is a leaded, concentrated, ultra high auto-ignition temperature combination of
isomeric components giving excellent end gas region control and superior convective
combustion chamber cooling.
