Being able to maneuver so fast and to change gears so quickly is a skill that only racers are gifted with. Yes, such skill can be obtained through training, but you also need to have the heart of a very adventurous and courageous person to make it very possible. The love for speed and to drive is an essential part of a racing profession. One can overcome the hurdles one will face on the road when he is manageable behind the wheel. A racing car or vehicle is the only tool that a racer has on his hands, totally equipped and assembled to really handle the vigorous route that it will go under, it needs a powerful push like racers in a marathon, something to keep it going, and help finish the race.

Cars used in racing activities need to be fueled up all the time. It is the only way it could track their designated path continuously without fail. However, riders or the drivers should bear in mind to use only the right fuel on the car engines. This way, you would be insured that engine troubles would not be experienced. Like any ordinary car, a selected type of gasoline whether Unleaded or Leaded is needed to be fueled up properly, the wrong fuel used will either cause damage on the car or will certainly affect the way it functions. There are several types of racing fuel used, either, Leaded gasoline, Methanol fuel, Nitromethane fuel, Nitrous fuel, and Ethanol fuel.

Leaded no More
Because of health and environmental issues with the use of leaded gasoline, this has been phased out in the 70’s and instead Unleaded fuel was used. The quantity of gasoline being used consistently by racing vehicles, especially during racing events measured up to the danger of leaded gasoline effects, unlike the regular vehicles that use Leaded gasoline for a period of time. The year 2011 marked the start of a “green” innovation in the racing profession, lessening the effects of air pollution as possible as can be.

NitromethaneNaturally Fueled
Technology is now acknowledging the negative effects of their work towards the environment. That is why they created natural and organic fuel like Nitromethane. It is a fuel not only used for radio controlled vehicles and rockets, but also for vehicles used in drag racing events is combined together with Methanol Fuel, produced from biomass and natural gas and not costly compared to Ethanol. For racing events like the IndyCar Series, Ethanol fuel is a less toxic type of gasoline that racers use. Raising the capacity of horsepower, Nitrous fuel is used by drag racers.

The love for speed is within the blood and heart of racers around the world. Just like the racers, their vehicles also need the proper drink to go all the way through a racing success.  However, drivers should be vigilant in choosing cars. They should go for cars that require fuel that will not only make it go fast but protect the planet as well.
