Default EPIC RC and TORCO fuel PROBLEMS

I don't know if anyone else has dealt directly with torco but I had the worst customer service ever.

I emailed them directly and spoke to them on the phone. I was sent to epicrc.com to order it. I ordered it and paid via paypal on april 23rd. after 2 weeks of no communication, I called the cell number and attempted to contact them. No one answered and no one returned my call. Last week I then filed a claim with paypal, then still no communication I filed a claim. Finally today I received refund.

This is factual information, I am not bashing anyone, just letting everyone know my experience. No hate mail please.

Quick question. What is the current oil content on the Torco Fuels? I've read everythign from 8%-11%, but nothing that proves an actual amount.

Also, I recently had a problem with an engine, that has me wondering if it is the fuel.. When I went to a particular gallon my temps went up significantly, fuel consumption went up from 12 minute run time to 8 minute run times, and compression went BYE BYE! I have used about 1/2 of this gallon, now sending off piston and sleeve to be pinched. I am thinking I have a bad gallon of fuel. My Biggest concern is I have 7 more gallons of Torco that are unopened. What should I do?

10%

(8% Proprietary Synthetic oil, 2% Castor Oil)

Not sure of any issues, I have run a few cases in the past year without any problems and have sold a few hundred cases in the southeast without any issues.

Some people make an error and tune for smoke coming from the pipe, I have been able to get 350 head temps and it still smoke like a motor than was running 150. Tuning for smoke is not suggested with this fuel. I run a Jammin .21 plus, that is on its 9th gallon, and get about 10 minute runtimes avg. with head temps about 210, depending on weather and such.

That being said, I have had a few people that tune strictly on smoke and have worn out the piston and sleeve because of it being to lean. They were really lean 12-18 hours leaner from the previous fuel they used. Castor and Synthetic oil have a flashpoint within a few degrees of each other, it is just the type of oil difference that causes the smoke difference.

Thanks Tim
