Anyone hear of or have experience with FUSE unleaded race fuels?

Figured I would post here as A: more traffic and B: I'm N/A

Looking for a lower cost alternative to Q16.

I'm 15:1 N/A

They recommended their PN HF1170E

Some quick specs:

Unleaded
117.6 motor octane
5.6% oxygen
.765 Spec. Grav.


Ideally it should probably be tested on dyno but, if I decided on mid season switch, any recommended base changes to jetting / timing vs. current Q16 set up?

They claim unleaded is fine, I don't even know what lead does.

The lead in race fuels is used as a solid lubricant for old school valve trains, if your heads have bronze guides then leaded race fuel is unnecessary. I recently switched from turbo blue to fuse, simply because I was forced to do so....( local stations didn't have anymore blue) One station near me started carrying fuse and I tried it. I immediately noticed benefits of more consistency during weather changes and the car picked up .05 in the 60 ft which led to a .10 in E.T. I bracket race and the increase in consistency has been amazing for me. Hopefully its the same situation for you, I only have 11.5 to 1 compression and use 110 but regardless the fuel seems to be better than what I was using, plus they claim not being exposed to the lead in the exhaust is also beneficial.
