I have been using Blendzall 501 for years for the same reason, and it smells better. We don't go as rich as you mixing only 1 pint per 55 gallons, I think you said you mix a quart per 55 gallons.

Your ratio is 240 to 1 or .00417% if you substituted nitro at that percent I still don't see performance enhancing qualities in your fuel.. I don't think they make a hydrometer accurate enough to catch it and probably under a spectrometer analysis it would come up under trace amounts of hydrocarbons.

The guy saying you was illegal has probably never done a fuel analysis IN a previous post.

However on a "good nose day" I could probably catch you.

DAD, I didn't get DQ'd, I was just using the rule as something that never gets even looked at, as far as does it fit what we're doing in this century. Klotz Uplon is not the same as Blendzall, Uplon is not to be used as a substitute for oil mix used in a 2stroke, the ratio I use is more like 2oz in 5 gal, so it's pretty minute, but gets the job done, and it still has that bean oil smell. I have made the mistake of using a maybe more well known product, and spent the whole season, trying to get it out of the system, it clogged up filter after filter, not to mention injector nozzles. BTW, it will show up in the water test, as will a lot of other things! Bob

At 240 to 1 a guy would have to have pretty good eyes.

I am going to try and get in touch with the "EPA" for a ruling on that. They have the expertise and computing power to get it down to PPM's and maybe even "Moles" if they deem it necessary. My only concern is that they may find that "Top End Lube" to be a "carcinogen" after performing experiments with "Rats" and outlaw it on the spot thus turning it over to "OSHA" for compliance inspections, and that will probably involve the "DOJ" and we all know about them people.

We looked around at some dates, but we couldn't find anything that looked to be ideal. We will keep the Midgets pretty busy starting August 30 with a string 4 shows within a 5 week period (September 13, September 20, September 27, and October 11).

We are excited to get back to Midget racing and to get a more consistent flow of Midget racing going.

Changing the subject we got a little 3.0 litter V6 Ford motor in the other day, and just got it undressed and here is what it looks like at 385 pounds fully dressed just out of the wrecked car.

And later at about 250 pounds with all the street stuff removed and ready to go and try to put in a race car, it looks a little short, guess that is because it is only 3 small cylinders long as opposed to 4 big cylinders long. Wonder if that will move my CG back and put more weight on the rear wheels?
