    Hey guys, can you guys give me an idea of how much fuel is used on a blown alcohol 1/8th mile pro mod per pass, screw blown 3.6-3.7 second deal if that matters.

    Trying to figure out how many drums of M1 I would need for a season.

    Thanks,
    Trevor Sherwood

    You also need to figure in warmups in the pits and trouble shooting.

    You got to figure at least four qualification rounds and four eliminations plus depend on the race association you can have test runs. One drum a race is probably safe.

    In my TA/FC with a PSI D we would burn several gallons just in a two minute warm up. I'm thinking 4+.
