There's no reason to restrict the fuel to any standard more stringent than pump gas. The big motocross bikes have more power than traction anyway. I think the AMA has just found a loophole to get themselves out of the hole they dug with a silly rule.

But what they really need to do is reform the penalties AND the points structure. First, the penalty should be a certain number of finishing places, say three or four. A fine is no deterent to a factory team. And who cares if the guy finishing 15th used hot fuel.

Second, the points differential is way to small between 1st and 2nd and 3rd. Just falling down or getting hit or having a chain break will essentially eliminate a rider who can otherwise win every race. I think the points should be more like Formula One used to be, 10 6 4 3 2 1. So you could make up for a DNF in three races.
