Sunoco Maximal 116 Octane, Leaded Racing Fuel in 54 Gallon Drums is meant for extreme performance motor sports. 

This fuel is sanctioned by: NHRA 

Sunoco Maximal is designed for high revving and high compression in big bore, large displacement naturally aspirated engines. This drag racing fuel has especially proven itself in highly stress big block engines used in Truck and Tractor pulling. Additionally, Sunoco Maximal is very resistant to vapor lock, ensuring consistent fuel metering between passes. 

Sunoco Maximal is for off-road and racing use only. It contains additives to enhance stability and minimize oxidation. As with any gasoline, Maximal should be stored in opaque, tightly sealed containers where temperatures are stable. Handled under such conditions, the shelf life of Sunoco Maximal is 2 years or more.

    I've been running 116 VP fuel. Price went out of sight ($ 1016.00)for 54 gallons. $ 330.00 freight. Checked around and found Sunoco Maximal 116. It was $ 675.00 for 54 gallons. $ 165.00 freight. The car runs the same numbers as before.
