Under race conditions how many mgs's are you guys getting? I want to get a 8 gallon cell for 45 minute races. Is the cell big enough?

I would think so if you start with about 8 gallons.

 

I get around 7-9 mpg, depending on the track. (I have a B18B BUT I get similar mpg to locals that run B16A)

 

Let's say:

45-minute race, 1-mile track, 1:05 lap times, 8 mpg.

After about 13 minutes of racing you're about 12 miles in and have used less than 2 gallons.

Triple that and you're about 40 minutes of race time with about 36 miles covered and less than 6 gallons used.

Add a warm-up lap before the green but after the timer started and you have maybe 1-2 laps of racing left with around 2 gallons left.

 

*SUPER* rough estimate but should give you an idea. Bigger tracks (Cal Speedway, Willow Springs, Daytona, etc) will have your mpg go screaming off a cliff lol.
