Sunoco Cyclone 17 is a 117 Octane, Leaded Racing Fuel 

Sunoco Cyclone 17 is designed to offer quick throttle response and uniform atomization rate throughout the evaporation process. Cyclone 17 will excel in high compression, high rpm engines and favors large intake runners. 

Cyclone 17 is an excellent choice for drag racing and truck pulling. It’s also a good choice for 2-stroke racing engines because the fast-burning fuel offsets the slower-burning oil present in 2-stroke engines. Favorable atomization characteristics will benefit 2 and 4 stroke engines throughout the entire rpm range. Cyclone 17 can offer extreme detonation protection to large cubic inch, large intake runner designs. 

Sunoco Cyclone 17 is for off-road and racing use only.  It contains additives to enhance stability and increase storage life.  Gasoline should be stored in opaque, tightly sealed containers where temperatures are stable.  Handled under such conditions, the shelf life of Sunoco Cyclone 17 is 2 years or more.
