Gulf Racing Fuels at the 2016 PRI Show

Gulf Racing Fuels is excited for our biggest presence ever at the PRI show! We've moved to a larger space: Booth #6039, neighboring the Penske 50th anniversary exhibit. Not only is the booth now larger, but we will also have a Gulf radical car in the booth!

The Gulf Mach series of unleaded fuels is great for the modern, high horsepower car. It's detonation resistance is proven, replacing leaded fuel up to 118 octane, with better lubricity, stability, storage life and flexibility than leaded fuels. You can safely use it in closed loop operation, as it does not harm O2 sensors. It is also not harmful to catalytic converters, so it's not only great for the purpose built track car, but also the weekend warrior who sees plenty of street time. It can also be blended with pump gas. Simply add the amount of fuel needed to reach your desired octane, or run straight 116 unleaded!

Gulf Sponsored Drivers to make appearances at PRI

Come meet our sponsored drivers at the 2016 PRI show! Mach 116 has been showcased awesomely by Gulf sponsored drivers Brian and Michelle Devilbiss! Brian's 2013 GT500 (AKA: The Devil's Reject) run consistent mid-low 7 second 1/4 mile times on Mach 116 in the 185-188 MPH range.

Michelle's new edge mustang (The Devil's Revenge) also puts down brutal power and runs on Mach 116. These cars are nasty and we couldn't ask for better brand representation!


Rounding off the Gulf Mach lineup of sponsors, Jim Roberts, Kennady Jones and Ryan "Rhino" Jones continue to shine in NMRA Truck & Lightning, all running on the venerable Gulf Mach 110. The Mach Series of fuels offers the ultimate in consistency, so driver input, not fuel performance, remains the number one variable (as it should be).

Last, but certainly not least, we have Justin Jordan, showcasing Gulf E98 in his 7 second, also street legal Mustang. This car runs deep into the 7's and Justin just has a knack for winning. We like to think it has a little bit to do with his fuel choice, too! Justin owns Jordan Performance & Racing in Riverview (Tampa) FL and offers custom tuning services, including race tunes with Gulf Racing Fuels. Justin uses HP Tuners and AEM stand alone fuel management, depending on the application. He has grown quite a following of mustang enthusiasts who seek his custom tuning services.

Justin will be primarily in the MBRP booth at PRI, but will also be making appearances in the Gulf booth!


Our staff and drivers will be on hand throughout the PRI show to answer your questions and we'll be there signing up dealers. Gulf Racing Fuels offer a huge value to the customer and a profitable sale for the distributor and dealer. If you have any questions or would like to schedule an appointment at PRI, please send an email to and we will schedule you in. Otherwise, just stop by booth #6039 for a photo op with the Gulf Radical SR3 RSX, to meet our drivers and to learn more about the entire line of Gulf Racing Fuels. We hope to see you there!

Gulf MARINE Fuel Blended with Isobutanol from Gevo Inc. is Suitable and Safe for Racing Boats and Recreational Marine Engines

Gulf MARINE biofuel with isobutanol is one of the first fuels on the market to comply with biofuel recommendations issued last week by the National Marine Manufacturers Association (NMMA) and the American Boat and Yacht Council (ABYC).

The new recommendations come after five years of extensive marine industry testing of fuel containing isobutanol, a renewable biofuel alternative provided by Gevo Inc. for recreational boating. Those testing the fuel included the U.S. Department of Energy, Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy, Argonne National Laboratory, Volvo-Penta, Bombardier Recreational Products, Evinrude, Yamaha, Mercury Marine, Honda, Tohatsu, Indmar and the U.S. Coast Guard.

The testing was undertaken to confirm that recreational boaters could power their engines with gasoline blends that contain isobutanol as a replacement for ethanol, and experience fewer problems and better performance while still meeting government-mandated Renewable Fuel Standards.

Gulf MARINE fuel is made with Gevo-supplied isobutanol at a 12.5% ratio to gasoline. Gulf offers two octane choices: 93 and 100. Gulf also offers a 16.1% blend for racing applications only.

Gulf MARINE delivers on the primary benefits of isobutanol-blended gasoline, which include improved moisture and water resistance, higher energy content, and preventing phase separation in the fuel system and reducing engine corrosion.

Isobutanol is a registered fuel additive with blends of up to 12.5% allowed for on road gasoline. Gulf MARINE fuel is available at participating Gulf retailers and marinas in factory-sealed packages of 5 gallons and 55 gallons.

“Last year, we successfully launched our isobutanol-blended gasoline for recreational boating use, and the endorsement by the NMMA and ABYC will help more boaters know that isobutanol-blended gasoline is a safe and effective biofuel,” said Jess Hewitt, President of HYPERFUELS, the exclusive licensee of Gulf Racing Fuels.”

Pat Gruber, CEO of Gevo, Gulf Racing’s isobutanol supplier, said, “We have been working with Gulf Racing Fuels since 2013 to develop a commercially available gasoline using isobutanol. The endorsement from these boating organizations validates this work and will be a boon for isobutanol-blended fuels worldwide.”

Isobutanol and Going Ethanol Free

Why Gulf Uses Isobutanol: 

Some our fuels use an additive called ISOBUTANOL, an advanced biofuel, to replace ethanol. Isobutanol is an EPA Approved oxygenate containing 30% higher BTU than ethanol, while producing power beyond typical ethanol-based gasoline.

ISOBUTANOL is not hygroscopic which means it will not absorb nor accumulate water, nor will the fuels damage or affect gas tanks, gaskets, carburetors or injectors. Our fuels, using ISOBUIANOL, meet all engine makers requirements which means these fuels will not void engine warranties.  The National Marine Manufacturers Association has endorsed gasoline containing ISOBUTANOL as being better that using fuels containing ethanol.

Gulf fuels containing ISOBUTANOL are excellent for everyday engines and high performance engines operating is high humidity environments or any environment around water. The fuels can also be used in engines that are used only occasionally as the fuel when static will not absorb water.  Racing applications include Hydroplane drag boats, offshore racing boats, high altitude racing and snowmobiles....
