Supercars FAQ Guide  

Do all cars run BP fuel?
The entire field fueled with BP’s own E85 blend. 
Does BP manufacture the fuel?
BP works with Race Fuels to blend up the E85.  BP supplies all the raw materials for the blending of the fuel, along with the blending formulation.  BP’s fuel technologists monitor and test every blend of E85 to ensure a consistent high-quality fuel to the Supercars Championship. No E85 is purchased from a third-party supplier. 
Is the fuel the same as previous years?
BP has invested significant time and resource into the development of the BP E85 fuel that will be supplied to supercars. Our focus is on ensuring that we deliver a consistent and high-quality blend of E85 to all teams to ensure they can run at optimal performance. Whilst the fuel specification hasn’t changed its our commitment to ensure we deliver consistent and quality fuel that will set us apart.  
How does BP fuel work with Race Fuels?
BP works with Race Fuels to blend and distribute to the track our BP E85. BP fuel technologists and Race Fuels control the blend, validation, and testing prior to it being released to Supercars. Race Fuels deliver finalised BP E85 to tracks for Australia and New Zealand Supercars events.  
Will BP sell E85 in store?
At this time E85 will not be available for customer purchase, as BP’s focus remains on delivering our premium BP Ultimate 98 ULP fuel for Australian drivers. This is the same fuel that is used to fuel the vehicles competing in the Bathurst 12-hour event.
