How does your K16 compare to Q16?

If he had some 5 gallon cans available here I could find out... Last time I talked to him they didn't have any. I have the new QF body carb to try soon, I can do it just as easily with any race fuel but K16 would work. I know a few guys running Q16, K16 would save them some change if it's comparable.

This isn't Q or K fuel related but local guy that I buy C12 from told me last week that he now has Renegade in the same motor octane that is a fair amount a gallon cheaper than the C12? I didn't buy it because I already had 2 gallons of C12 in the tank and didn't want to mix it but I will try it before the year is out.

Haven't checked on their methanol pricing yet though.

Well this is a case of the big guy trying to choke out the little guy so my VP supplier is now a Renegade supplier.

And the big guy only wants to sell Q out of a 55 gallon drum. I was born in the morning but not this morning! [-(

My luck I go to buy some and "Bubba" left the top off the drum all week. O:)

There are very few specs online for the K16 but from what I see the RVP is slightly lower and the Motor octane is 2 points higher. Not the optimum numbers I would like to see but I haven't tried it.

I'm wondering how they compare jet wise.

More and more racers are realizing that . Renegade is every bit as good , in many cases better , and has a realistic price .

The Renegade is a better fuel at a better price .
Renegade PRO 112 specs
Motor Octane is 109
SG is .716
RVP is 7.2

Jetting will be very close .

Motor Octane 118
SG .716
RVP 6.5

For a real world comparison , check out YB 9/16/2011 on VP site

I think I might go to oxygenated fuel this year and have some VP 113 to try. Depending on how that goes I need to buy a drum for this year. The Renegade rep told me that their 112 oxy is comparable to the 113. Is the 112 oxy as good as the 113? I might not use an entire drum this year so I need to know how well it stores if I keep any over the winter.

So when will you have some 5 gallon K16 cans to try Mike?
