VP Racing Fuel Products

VP Racing Fuels are a huge name over in the States – A household name and recognized by many as the world leader in race fuel technology, with a catalogue of nearly 70 fuel blends and a growing roster of VP-fueled champions across the entire spectrum of motorsports.

As you can imagine, once their reputation began to spread internationally, we were pretty keen to get their products on the shelf at Opies. We were especially interested in their potent range of fuel additives, designed from the ground up to get the most from your engine.

madditivesfinal

 

VP Racing Fuels was founded by Steve Burns, who initially exhibited his aptitude for R&D in the early 1970’s as a young racer in San Antonio, Texas. Steve was convinced the race fuel manufacturers of the day were falling short in their quest for optimum horsepower. To address this shortcoming, he began experimenting with exotic blends of fuel. Over time, this led to the development of their fuel enhancers and additives, or “madditives” as they are better known.

Whether you are after an all-in-one diesel conditioner, octane boost for your race car or even an entire fuel system cleaner that will cover you for 5000 miles, there will be an additive that is designed to exceed your expectations. Have a look through the list below for the new products in this range, simply click on the product of interest for all details.

Worried about rust breakouts?

Have you noticed a slightly rough or gritty layer on your paintwork after its been washed? Those of us who regularly clean and detail our vehicles will have noticed it is particularly evident on horizontal panels such as the bonnet, boot lid and roof. It’s easy to simply write this off as dust that has landed from the air – We assure you that it is not. These are in fact airborne metallic particles, liberated from braking surfaces, such as pads and disks. These harmful particles literally fill the air along our roads and motorways, you may not be able to see them but they are there nonetheless, whenever a car brakes in front of you, it will create a cloud of warm particles that then cling and embed into your paintwork when you pass through it.
