Maryland Int’l Raceway offers a discount of $ .50 per gallon on all 55-gallon drum purchases (racer is required to supply their own drum). This discount will be valid for all grades of racing fuel (MS 103 Unleaded, 110, C12, C16) as well as racing alcohol.

Drum sales are available during normal operating hours at all events, and from 9:00 am – 5:00 pm Monday through Friday. Current fuel pricing is always available at by clicking on VP Fuel Station; or by simply calling the MDIR Office at 301-884-9833.

The amounts listed below are normal per gallon prices.  The drum discount mentioned above is $ .50 off the per gallon prices listed below.  For example, a fuel that is priced at $4.75 per gallon on the chart below would actually be $4.25 per gallon at the drum discount price.

MS103 provides power and protection equal to some leaded racing fuels. Compared to Motorsport 101, it allows even more aggressive timing and higher compression-up to 14:1 in cast iron head engines and up to 15:1 with aluminum heads. Can allow doubling of stock boost - consult your engine builder. Also contains no metal compounds and won't harm catalytic converters or oxygen sensors. AMA legal for Supercross & Outdoor Nationals.

Not your "standard" 110! Highest rated MON of any 110 fuel on the market. Formulated for use in naturally aspirated engines with CRs up to approximately 12:1-13:1. Works well in 2-strokes. Good lower cost alternative.

Color: Purple
Motor Octane: 107
Research Octane: 113
R+M/2: 110
Specific Gravity: .720-.735 @ 60 F


The best all around racing fuel made. Recommended for CRs below 15:1, satisfying the needs of 75% of today's race engines. One of the winningest fuels in racing history, including Modified Tour, GNN, D.I.R.T., Indy Lights, NHRA, AMA as well as other local and national championships across the U.S. and around the world.

Color: Green
Motor Octane: 108
Specific Gravity: .717 at 60 F


Used in turbocharged engines, blown engines and nitrous applications with CRs up to 17:1. Recommended by the top nitrous oxide companies. Spec Fuel for NHRA Comp Eliminator.

Color: Blue
Motor Octane 117
Specific Gravity: .735 at 60 F


M1 Racing Methanol has a 99.95% minimum purity - the highest purity available in the U.S. With M1, engines run cooler and are less subject to corrosion. VP uses only lined drums which prohibit rust, corrosion and metal deposits that can contaminate fuel delivery systems. Recommended for all methanol-legal racing applications.

VP’s best fuel yet for 4-stroke applications that can tolerate lower octane values, makes more power for powersport applications than any fuel on the market. Dyno tests proved up to 5% more power than VP’s MR9 and up to 6% more power than VP’s MRX01! Although currently not legal in AMA Pro Racing, MR12 passes fuel rules for AMA Pro/Am, CCS, WERA, AFM, NMA, WORCS, SCORE and Best in the Desert as well as club level racing and more.

Specific Gravity: .733 at 60 F



Recommended for naturally aspirated engines operating at over 8000 RPMs with CRs of 14:1 and over in drag race cars, 4-stroke drag race motorcycles, snowmobiles and PWCs (230 psi or higher). Spec fuel for NHRA Comp Eliminator.

Q16 will work well in any drag racing or circle track application -- naturally aspirated, nitrous or blowers. Q16 is highly oxygenated, requiring a 4-6% increase in fuel flow, which will make 3-5% more power than competitive 116 octane fuels. Q16's oxygenation will significantly expand the range of air/fuel ratio acceptability, so performance will be more consistent and won't vary as dramatically with altitude or density changes. For bracket racers, variations in ET from run to run will be substantially reduced. This added fuel flow also effectively increases its octane by 6-8 numbers above its standard ASTM octane rating.

Research Octane: 120+
Specific Gravity: .716 at 60 F



Recommended for ultimate performance in nitrous oxide applications with CRs up to 18:1. Used in Sport Compact, ADRL Pro Mod and large 800 CI IHRA-style drag race engines.

Motor Octane 120+
Specific Gravity: .713 at 60 F



Arguably, the best performing two stroke motocross fuel for stock and modified engines, period! Surpassing MRX01, MRX02 is effective in delivering up to 7% more power than pump gas and any basic non-oxygenated race fuel. This high end fuel blend passes rules for AMA Pro/Am.

Color: Light Blue
Motor Octane 100
Specific Gravity: .734 at 60 F





Maximum power and torque in small displacement, high RPM, all motor, turbocharged or nitrous sport compact applications. Makes 5% more power than C16 and similar nonoxygenated fuels. Works well under high temperatures due to mechanical heat.

If youre committed to using E85 type fuels, C85 is by far your best choice. Conventional E85 fuels are notoriously inconsistent, requiring up to a two-jet swing in tuning from one batch of E85 to the next. By contrast, C85 is blended with a consistent proportion of ethanol and every other component in every drum. In addition to taking all the guesswork out of tuning, C85 makes up to 4% more power and torque than conventional E85. With higher quality pure components, C85 is superior to E85 in terms of cooling effect, resistance to detonation and even includes corrosion inhibitors to fight the issues presented by ethanol. C85 works well in drag racing, oval track, off road and virtually any other automotive application, in particular forced induction applications due to its lower vapor pressure. Tests of C85 indicate most applications will require richening up by 1 jet size, or 2-3% over current jetting. Note that for racers unwilling to invest in the new carb and expensive fuel system upgrade required for E85, VPs MS109, VP113 and Q16 continue to be the best race gas alternatives for the money.
