Driven Racing Oil™ will be featured as part of a technical seminar examining the rust and corrosion problems Ethanol can create in carburetors during this year’s SEMA Show in Las Vegas.
Over 90% of pump fuel contains at least some Ethanol, and the EPA has recently raised pump fuel’s allowed level of Ethanol from 10% (E10) to 15% (E15). These changes have serious consequences for carbureted engines. Modern vehicles are equipped with fuel injection, and current fuel standard tests deal with issues related to these modern fuel systems. However, carburetors in cars, trucks and motorcycles that are rarely driven face issues with Ethanol-blended fuels that current pump fuel standards do not address. This session provides information related to the use of Ethanol-blended fuels in carbureted power plants. Scheduled to take place at 2:00 p.m. on Tuesday, November 5th in room N262, the seminar is entitled “Ethanol’s Effect – What E10 up to E85 Does to Carburetors.” Speakers include Lake Speed Jr., Certified Lubrication Specialist at Driven Racing Oil, and Michael Miller from Technical Services at Sunoco Race Fuels. As part of the seminar Speed will talk about the rust and corrosion that Ethanol can cause in carburetors, and will discuss the benefits of Driven’s new Carb Defender™ Fuel Additive.
