We're Going To Pump You Up
Due to RacePumps, new car owners aren't the only ones who can take advantage of the E85 phenomenon. Available for both carbureted and Efi small- and big-block Chevrolets, RacePumps' new line of high-performance fuel pumps is now fully E85 flex-fuel compatible. That means you can run straight gasoline, E85, or a blend of both. The innovative RacePumps design has no diaphragm and the body is hard-anodized billet, which is compatible with all known fuels, and the seals are compatible with E85. Most standard fuel pumps are near their operating limit with gasoline; the extra fuel required when running E85 is often more than they can deliver. RacePumps' valveless, variable-displacement design creates constant pressure from idle to redline, and requires significantly less power to operate than a standard mechanical pump. Both carbureted and Efi pumps flow up to 204 gph and can support over 2,000 horsepower. All claims are by the manufacturer. To get the rest of the lowdown on RacePumps' E85 pumps, contact RacePumps at 336-476-9583, www.racepumps.com.
