Any car or motorcycle that is a true "TOP FUEL" vehicle, uses a mixture of methanol (alcohol) and nitromethane. The current NHRA rules allow for a mixture of 90% nitromethane to 10% alcohol.

How do top fuel dragsters work?

Very basically they have internal combustion engines just like a family car. The fun of course is in the differences! The road car needs to go steadily and use as little fuel as possible. The top car's aim is to burn fuel as fast as possible to deliver that short but intense burst of speed. One of the main ways it does this is to burn a very different fuel, nitromethane mixed with a little methanol.
