It takes plenty of fuel to run at wide-open throttle for 90 miles, and believe it or not, John has stuffed two 20-gallon fuel cells in his chassis. Fuel is burned from the main tank first, then additional fuel is pumped in from the secondary cell. The primary cell is a modified Cobra R part featuring an internal fuel sump fed by two low-pressure, in-tank pumps. From the sump, a Sean Hyland 1,000hp pump delivers fuel to the engine. The advantages of this system are the tank can be run low on fuel without starvation, and hard cornering will not uncover the fuel pickup.
