    This month has a 99% probability that Pump and Pantry ( a subsidiary of Bosselman Enterprises that runs convenience stores, motels and Bosselman Travel Centers ) that is 1/2 mile down the road from MPH will have race fuel at the Store. Better than being at the track which would have limited usage and openings time wise, with the Tank being at the Convenience store one should be able to get fuel very easily. Since their main pumps run 91 Octane , this is means no more Octane Boost , dragging race fuel to the track to bump the Octane up a little to the preferred 93 , and great for those of us that need 98 Octane for our racing beasties!? Having fuel so close by has me pumped ( pun intended) and I for one have never been a big fan of lugging around a bunch of fuel in my trailer - had a friend's burn down with the car inside from an accident. The big plus is many of us run NASA , SCCA or open track days there, so what a boon for trackraticus folks going to MPH? Charlie Bosselman races an AC Cobra Continuation in NASA and local events , so big thanks to a fellow Blue Oval afficianado for providing this great service! Get pumped up when your race in Hastings!

    Excellent news! No more hauling fuel in those Jerry Cans in the back of the F-150. Nice short drive to the pump there. I have to admit that I have such a great tyme around the track that I almost forget to check my fuel level.

    I picked up ten gals of 100 octane at a local dirt/go-cart track, IMI Motorsports about 6 miles from the homestead yesterday. Still ten bucks a gallon, same as I've been paying at HPR the past few years. I see that 91 octane fluctuates over the years but this race fuel not so much.

    Did he throw a tank in for E85? Tried the E85 at the other station in the middle of town and it wasn't right. Didn't test it, but car didn't like it. Been hauling out 50 gallons of E85 from Omaha ever since.

    Don't know, but can sure ask? If not going in at Pump and Pantry can ask George and a couple of friends in Hastings if there is a better place?They have an ethanol plant in town so they may even know the hot ticket for E-85 in Hastings?

    This is handy news! I hope to get back there this year. I really loved this track and at the end of the day I was finally starting to get a hang of it.
