Nowadays more and more racing teams go for DMA 35 Ex Petrol when it comes to the rapid measurement of the fuel concentration before the start of a race.

Nitromethane in racing

Nitromethane is the major constituent of the fuel for top fuel drag racing; the other ingredient is largely methanol. The requirements on the composition of the fuel mixture may vary.

The fuel composition must be measured prior to each race and adapted to the respective conditions such as ambient temperature and humidity, and also to the motor. Failure to ensure the correct composition of the fuel might result in severe damage to the motor with the risk that the race might be over before it even began. In the worst case, the driver might also be exposed to danger.
