Why Do You Need VP Small Engine Fuel?
Ethanol- The Scourge of Small Engines
With increasing frequency, ethanol in today’s street gasoline fouls carburetors and degrades fuel systems in portable gas-powered tools, making them difficult, if not impossible, to start. As a solvent, ethanol frees up the gunk in fuel tanks and engines that can clog carburetors and fuel lines. The size of a small engine exaggerates this effect, as smaller fuel lines and smaller components are more quickly compromised by these deposits.
When equipment is stored for lengthy periods, e.g. lawnmowers during winter or snowblowers during summer, the ethanol absorbs moisture and separates from the gasoline yielding insufficient lubrication for the engine, while also degrading rubber fuel lines and plastic components in the fuel system. These issues will only get worse as the EPA continues to increase the amount of ethanol permitted in street gas.
Common damage caused by Ethanol: corroded carburetor and fuel system components, damaged grommets, trash buildup in fuel filters and clogged fuel lines. Some of these problems can occur in just a matter of days.
What VP-SEF does for your small engine:

●Does not attract moisture
●Won’t degrade or oxidize while in storage
●Won’t leave gummy deposits in your carburetor
●Remains stable indefinitely in a sealed container
●Protects your fuel system
●Extends the life of your engine
●Avoids costly rebuilds
●Pre-Mix contains synthetic oil that exceeds API
TC, JASO FD and ISO-L-EGD lubrication standards
VP Small Engine Fuel – The Perfect Fuel For Light Equipment
VP Small Engine Fuel is ethanol-free and specifically formulated by the experts at VP Racing Fuels with the highest quality components for top performance, long life and durability of your portable gas-powered equipment.
VP Small Engine Fuel Ensures Easier Starts and Worry-Free Long-Term Storage
With no ethanol and other unique properties to keep it stable, VP Small Engine Fuel is an excellent long-term storage fuel. It will remain stable indefinitely in a sealed container and won’t degrade plastic, rubber or fiberglass components in your fuel system, allowing quick starts even after equipment sits idle for many months. It’s so reliable, many Fire & Rescue units have come to depend on it.
Fuel Stabilizers Aren't Enough
Fuel stabilizers can’t fix all the problems associated with ethanol – the ethanol is still present in the fuel. Ethanol-free VP Small Engine Fuel prevents these problems from occurring in the first place.
VP Small Engine Fuel Ensures Better Performance
In addition to easier starts, your equipment will run cleaner, smoother and you’ll see better throttle response.
Avoid Costly Repairs, Rebuilds or Frustration
Like many homeowners, landscapers, outdoorsmen, farmers, emergency workers and others, you may have experienced what its like to deal with a tool that won’t work when needed and the inconvenience of costly rebuilds.
Even if you haven’t experienced this, VP Small Engine Fuel can help make sure you won’t. Because VP-SEF extends the engine life of your light equipment, the inconvenience, cost and frustration of hard starts and repairs due to fuel problems will be a thing of the past.
Formulated By Experts, With The Highest Quality Components
VP Racing Fuels is the world leader in fuel technology for the most sophisticated race engines in the world.
