Sunoco Optima

Sunoco Optima Unleaded Racing Fuel

Sunoco Optima is an unleaded fuel blended from highly-refined hydrocarbon blend stocks. Optima does not contain ethanol or MTBE and is oxygenate-free.

Optima has excellent storage characteristics, making it ideal for storing vehicles and gasoline-powered equipment, especially those requiring an exceptionally stable unleaded fuel.

Optima is specially formulated to be easy on gaskets, o-rings, and other fuel system components. It also promotes quick mixing with 2-stroke oils in both air-cooled and water-cooled applications.

Sunoco Optima contains detergent additives for engine cleanliness as well as anti-oxidants and corrosion inhibitors to enhance storage life. Optima is not a street-legal fuel and is for off-road and racing use only. However, it will not harm oxygen sensors or catalytic converters.

This fuel is especially applicable for classes of racing specifically limited to 98 Pump fuel rules, especially Motorcycle and Go Karting.

Also suitable for large scale petrol powered remote control vehicles used in forms of motorsport.

Sunoco 260 GTX Unleaded Racing FuelSunoco_260GTX

Sunoco® 260 GTX™ is an unleaded racing fuel that contains no oxygenates and no metallic additives.

Sunoco 260 GTX is a good fuel for many applications that need more detonation protection than typical street gas provides, yet cannot use a leaded fuel.

It has been shown to produce repeatable power levels in engines to 12:1 compression ratio, and will tolerate more compression in engines with smaller or more efficient combustion chambers.

260 GTX will not harm sensors such as oxygen sensors used in fuel injection systems.

It is also an excellent choice where oxygenates such as alcohols and ether’s are limited or banned by the engine manufacturer or sanctioning organization.

Does not require retuning, but gains can be had with its increased resistance to detonation.

Extremely popular for Motorcycles, Go Karts and turbocharged vehicles in Australian Motorsport, suitable for all forms of water-sport.

Feedback is most vehicles run cooler, have increased throttle response and able to handle racing conditions without visible signs of detonation compared to regular unleaded fuels

Sunoco Apex Unleaded Racing Fuel

Sunoco Apex Unleaded is an oxygenated racing fuel designed for excellent throttle response in high compression, high rpm 2- and 4-stroke applications such as motorcycles, all-terrain vehicles, snowmobiles, and karts. Significant improvements in throttle response and acceleration compared to normal 98 RON fuel.

The properties of APEX were carefully tailored to allow small bore high revving engines to achieve peak performance while maintaining compliance with FIM Superbike Fuel Rules

Apex offers better protection against detonation in harsh racing conditions, makes up to 3% more Horsepower and Torque than premium pump fuel and gives you exact consistency so you don’t have to alter you tune up from drum to drum.

This fuel matches all other unleaded Motorcycle Specific fuels on the market in terms of performance and reliability, without having any offensive / toxic odours associated with competitors unleaded racing fuels due to being Ethanol Enriched rather than MTBE.

This fuel is also excellent for Water Sport vehicles like Jet Ski’s and small outboard engines with there high revving nature and being compatible with rules and regulations in relation to water sports use.
