    Default what fuel y'all running

    What gas fuel are y'all running in your 13.5-14/1 540, 555 and 565's? I'm running C12 would like to run 110 if I could get away with it.

    110 might be pushing it close on a 555 at 14:1, but you can use VP Racing Blue, which is almost identical to C-12 at about $30.00 less per drum.

    I've always wondered why all the compression on a "lake boat" engine. I can understand if ya got a 454 or 468 but when ur 540+ in the CI why do it ????

    Not knockin anybody but just askin a question.

    IMO save the good fuel for the 1/4 mile. JMO !!!!!!!

    Lake boat that ranges from one extreme to the next!

    its all about what you want.
