I am sponsored by tq fuel and so far it has been a great fuel for me. I used to run OD fuel and to be perfectly honest OD was great for me I switched because I was offered a chance to try another product and it has worked out great. Non of my engines needed more than an hour or 2 and they were working great when I switched. So to make it simple give it a shot you should be happy with it.

I am on my 3rd gallon of TQ coming from Byron's (great stuff too). The TQ fuel gave me noticably better throttle response and a wider tuning window. My engines seem a little more consistent. I love the stuff. I will order another case, I don't want to run anything else. You can also order it shipped to your door for less per gallon than any brand that I am aware of buying locally.

I see that on TQ's site you can only order 20% sport and 30% race, is this normal that they only have the two? I was hoping to order some 20% race sometime soo because localy I can only get 20% O'Donell rtr and that is at $30 a gallon after tax so I need something else. Is the 20% sport comparable to race?

Good luck ordering from the web site, I ordered a case 2 1/2 weeks ago and still have not got it. I understand alan is busy but a return email would be nice. So I guess I'll stick with sidewinder.

Default Hello guys

Sorry about the delay in getting your fuel out to you. Fuel was delayed in shipping last week (IT guy had family issues) but I take full responsibility. Shoot me a PM with your info so I can personally double check and make sure your fuel is on the way to you.

Default 20% Sport Blend

We do make a 20% RTR blend that we usually only sale in quarts.

As far as our 20% blend it is comparable to other fuel manufactures race blend. The sport blend is the same fuel Team Associated uses in the Gas Truck class.

PS The same exact fuel blend that Billy Easton and Richard Saxton run is what we sell direct to the consumer. I know some companies have special team brews but our fuel is just that good.

I will agree fully with this statement. I run 20% in my GT2, and CRT .5, and 30% both my 8ight, and 8ight T.

Default TQ

I also run the 30% TQ in my OCM ride. It is very good fuel. It seems to give me better low end power and longer run times than Byrons did. It also gives your motor a nice looking bronze look on the insife so you know that your motor is getting plenty of lubrication. John Nay
