VP Racing Small Engine Fuel: Save money and never worry

VP Small Engine Fuel is the most dependable small engine fuel on the market, saving you the inconvenience and expense of costly rebuilds while ensuring your equipment will start when it’s needed. SFEV is a proud distributor of VP Racing SEF.

VP Small Engine Fuel Ensures Easier Starts and Worry-Free Long-Term Storage
With no ethanol and other unique properties to keep it stable, VP Small Engine Fuel is an excellent long-term storage fuel. It will remain stable indefinitely in a sealed container and won’t degrade plastic, rubber or fiberglass components in your fuel system, allowing quick starts even after equipment sits idle for many months. It’s so reliable, many Fire & Rescue units have come to depend on it.

Ethanol – The Scourge of Small Engines
With increasing frequency, ethanol in today’s street gasoline fouls carburetors and degrades fuel systems in portable gas-powered tools, making them difficult, if not impossible, to start. As a solvent, ethanol frees up the gunk in fuel tanks and engines that can clog carburetors and fuel lines. The size of a small engine exaggerates this effect, as smaller fuel lines and smaller components are more quickly compromised by these deposits.

Fuel Stabilizers Aren’t Enough
Fuel stabilizers can’t fix all the problems associated with ethanol – the ethanol is still present in the fuel. Ethanol-free VP Small Engine Fuel prevents these problems from occurring in the first place.
