Hey guys what fuel jugs are you using to transport you’re e-85 ? My nearest station in about 1 hr away , I’ve looked at the Vp fuel jugs on Amazon & they have horrible reviews .

i have bought probably 20 of the VP jugs, what kind of negative review do they get?
I dont buy them off amazon but im sure they all come from the same china factory anyhow

i just looked and they get 89% 5 star rating so what do you consider "horrible" reviews??

I have one 35 gallon tank with a pump on it and then I have 6 VP jugs. I don't have one complaint for the VP jugs. I want them to hold my gas till I need it and they do it acceptionally well.

55 gallon drums. I fill 2 drums with 57 gallons each and two 5 gallon plastic jugs. Travel 170 miles to and from to get it then run a 50% mix to make it last 4 months.

The VP Jugs I keep finding (on Amazon and their own website) say they're NOT for transporting fuel

t.j.t,

Are you running stock cubes under the 2650?

Don't mean to side track this thread - just curious.

Yet they get 5 stars, thousands and thousands of them
I drag mine across rocks, concrete,back of my truck.
not saying some may not split (no one I know has had them split ) but it’s a $20 jug not $2000
mine don’t have a threaded vent cap, just a pop on one.

go Buy an epa approved gas can and see how awful they are, they don’t vent at all. They expand in the heat and sun and just spew fuel everywhere. Won’t even get into the spouts, Good luck pouring your fuel out if you can’t use a funnel. Same with portable fuel tanks. I have to sell someone a portable tank and then get them an old style gas cap that has a vent because the tanks expand and spit fuel out inside the boat

i even have 2 clear cooking oil jugs but sometimes the gas station guy gives you the stink eye because it’s clear and not red or yellow

I am, cars been 9.7 since that update, and I've picked up another 4 mph in the 1/8th since going 9.7 so I'm hoping to improve further, but the bottom ends on its last legs, and I've broke a bunch of stuff this year making a clean track day difficult lol.

Car should go 9.5 at 3500da

Are we referring to these ones? I didn’t buy because VP said not to use them for fuel…
