Outdoor Power Equipment: Premium Fuels & Oils


From Track to Lawn

For nearly 50 years, VP Racing Fuels has used superior fuel formulation science to produce some of the most trusted racing fuels on the planet. Our founder, Steve Burns, liked to say that outdoor power equipment engines, such as a lawn mower or weed eater, are nothing more than mini race engines – and he was right. For instance, a small 2-cycle or 4-cycle engine runs between 10K and 14K RPMs. This is not unlike a small racing engine.

From our humble beginnings in San Antonio, Texas to the present day, we still formulate and manufacture our fuels and lubricants in the USA. We buy raw fuel stocks, formulate, blend, and package our own products. As a result, this ensures that we control the quality, from raw materials to the finished product.

That’s why discerning consumers choose VP Racing Fuels.

Outdoor Power Equipment Products

We apply our chemical formulation expertise to blend over a full range of premium fuels and lubricants for outdoor power equipment. We design these products with a single goal in mind: The performance of your equipment.

Our premium 2-cycle ethanol-free small engine fuels (SEF) include 40:1, 50:1, and multi-mix blends. We also design an ethanol-free 4-cycle fuel for portable outdoor equipment. Our 2-cycle SEF use only the highest quality, cleanest-burning synthetic oil on the market. The fuels are virtually smoke- free and they substantially reduce carbon deposits in engines. These lubricant package meets or exceeds JASO FD, ISO-EGD, and API TC standards. Furthermore, the oil package in our 2-cycle premix meets or exceeds all OEM specifications from Craftsman, Troy-Bilt, Poulan, McCulloch and more. Our 4-cycle fuel and line of 2-cycle fuels both last 5 years in the can and 2 years in the tank.

Fix-It-Fuel is designed as a single use treatment for poor or non-running small engines that have been damaged by ethanol-blended street gas. It cleans and rejuvenates the fuel system and allows for easier starts. Moreover, Fix-It-Fuel works in any 2-cycle or 4-cycle engine that’s found in small outdoor power equipment. It’s also ideal to use as a fuel when storing outdoor equipment over the winter. Doing so ensures that your lawn mower, string trimmer, or leaf blower will start right up in the spring. If your lawnmower won’t start (or other portable outdoor equipment), read more about how Fix-It-Fuel will fix it for you and save you money.

VP small engine lubricants include 2-cycle and 4-cycle full synthetic oil, 4-cycle non-synthetic oil, hydraulic oil, and bar & chain oil for chainsaws. All of our lubricants offer industry-leading performance and also meet or exceed API SJ standards along with OEM specifications.
