Fuel pump, high octane...HELP requested

Recommended Posts

My fellow RennTechians...I was out yesterday (actually to fill the tank for some extended garage time), filled my tank and on the way home...fuel line ruptured...again. I am now on my 4th fuel pump.

So my question/poll to all users of high octane gas (I use VP100)...anybody had any fuel pump issues?

Also to those with fuel pump issues...what octane and type of gas are you using?

Thanks much brothers!

Why does high octane eat rubber? I called the technical expert at VP fuels and he said their VP100 (which is what I run) has the same oxygenators as pump fuel (e.g., ethanol). He said the European fuel lines are not designed for the ethanol we use in the states...problem I have with this is there should be a much larger problem then. I'm with you...there must be something else in the high octane fuel that contributes to this...
