I took all of Renegades fuels to the lab to test with me. Everything came out where it should of. The Vapor #'s where a little higher than they say. (aboout 1/2 point off or so) SG #'s were close

and motor octane looked great. On their 118, it came out to 120.1MON

We have started to test with their fuels in our cars and we will have a better idea later on.

I have several friends who are selling/running the Renegade 112 blue. They ran it all last year and they like it but they sell it soooooo.......LOL. Any idea if it is decent stuff? I can't get any decent price on Sunoco and Torco is gone. Any help is appreciated since I need fuel in the next week. RM

Will they allow you to just test and try? It's as close to Torco's fuels as possible. Im not allowed to say but there is some history behind Renegades blends(blender) and Torco's old product.

I would give it a shot.

However if your going all out, you mine as well just spend the money and run C12. Its more money but has proven itself over and over again.

I read the Renegade website info and see the Torco connection. I index race and bracket race so no max effort here. I have installed a difuser plate this year but even that is just a small tune up for a short shot to be able to get 1/10 in the heat of summer. I think I'll get 10 gallons and try it. Thanks, RM

Thanks TOPLESS that is what I was hoping to find. I got a little more compression but the 112 should be good for me too. I got about 10 gallons of Torco left to go test with tomorrow then I am out of gas......LOL. RM

for comparison, go with the 118 instead. The 118 has a little more Motor octane than C16 and the numbers are closer than renegades 116 is. Atleast thats what we got from our tests.

That is if you need a fuel very close to C16.

I've got a lot of customers trying my Renegade fuels and liking them. They smell better than Torco's fuel. And seem to be a good cheap alternitive. I will get back when we have some of the bigger cars on them.

agreed. Renegade does not make a fuel IMO to support that kind of power/nos setup.
