    It works as written at Stock and Mod races.

    Your beef isn't with the rule, but with the race committees running your races.
    Since 1925, about 150 different racing outboards have been made.

    That seems to go along with the scales.

    Well I run three diffrent regions that include about half of the united states and the problem exists in all of them. These are several diffrent race committees. Including stock/OPC & Inboard races and the problem is at all of them.

    Default Another Question

    How can a persons fuel & oil get tested twice on saturday & be fine, then the same mix be tested on Sunday and not pass the meter.

    Is this a issue with the testing procedure?
    A problem with the fuel meter?
    Weather related due to higher ambient heat tempeture?
    What would cause this?

    I am just trying to understand so I don't get caught in the same issue.

    I agree with you Jeff. Yes there is a rule but no procedure to follow. Although Jeff I have never had any trouble getting fuel tested before a race I do understand that fuel of the day location is never stated before the race and is always a race to get fuel before the race starts. Also it is important that if you know your oil is temermental with the meter you must check before the race. My thought is if you are running anything that runs in a PWC you should check it before every race/heat. Roger Carr told us to not run PWC oil after testing bad, or we would get tossed, so we changed before the race. We need to make sure we have a base number for the weekend, then you test your fuel agenst that. Once a baseline is established who cares where you buy it as long as it tests fine. Run what ever oil you want but it must be under the fuel base line.

    As for this weekend the +76 was way over the base line astablished on Saturday. Done, end of story all other racers were 50 points below that, somthing happend. Along with what Jeff is saying IF nothing was changed what made it change and how do we protect ourselves from that. That question I dont know.

    I agree with Jeff it could happen to any of us so how do we protect ourselves. We need to find out what caused the meter to read so high so it doesn't happen again.

    But the call was legal right? The proper officials overturned it
