Sunoco 260 GTX
£100.50 – £715.00 Ex VAT
Sunoco 260 GTX™ is a high-quality ethanol-free unleaded racing fuel that contains no oxygenates and no metallic additives. 260 GTX is an excellent fuel for many applications that need more detonation protection than typical unleaded fuel provides. 260 GTX has been shown to produce repeatable power levels in small block V8 engines with up to 12:1 compression ratios. For engines with smaller or more efficient combustion chambers, or engines with aluminium heads the compression ratio can be further increased.
260 GTX is not a street legal fuel and is for off-road and racing use only. However, it will not harm sensors such as oxygen sensors used in fuel injection systems. Sunoco 260 GTX contains additives to enhance shelf life and engine cleanliness. However, as with any petrol, it should be stored in opaque and tightly sealed containers where the temperature is stable. Handled under such conditions, the shelf life of 260 GTX is in excess of 2 years. As 260 GTX does not contain any oxygenates it is less hygroscopic than unleaded fuels and is therefore an excellent fuel for jet skis and motorboats.
All hazardous goods orders received before 12pm will be guaranteed to be dispatched the same day (depending on stock) and sent via a freight company that provides a standard 3 day signed delivery service*. For an additional cost, the option of a next day service is available throughout the majority of the UK. However, we cannot accept responsibility for orders that may be delayed in transit. Due to their hazardous nature, all fuel orders must be signed for on delivery. All routine deliveries are made during Monday to Friday. Some routes may be subject to ta longer delivery timescales.
All our fuels come in UN approved steel drums. All drums have a 2 inch BSP bung, they are designed for safe transport and storage but do not pour very well. To avoid spillage, it is best to use a pump to decant your fuel. We have a couple of different pump options which are available in our web shop. It is best to keep unused fuel in the drum supplied with the drum bung sealed tight. Race fuels will only really deteriorate if vapours can escape or moisture can get into the drum. For this reason, we would not recommend leaving race fuel in your fuel tank for an extended period of time – this is particularly important if the fuel in question contains ethanol. Any drained fuel is best kept in a separate container to the fresh, unused race fuel.
Try and store your fuel where it is not exposed to wide temperatures swings, i.e. outside.
