the "old" stuff is still avil. its called "hobby shop gold" its the same exact formula according to Byron (over the phone convo). If you like the new stuff congrats I am not here to argue the fact I had bad luck with it. as for run times I run the picco p7r and get 10 mins of runtime all day long with the 8mm venturi on the "old" stuff. just picked up a RB modded p7r hope to get around 10 1/2-11 on a tank also running the JP3/4 pipe depending on track layout. had a vspec that would get 12-12.5 with no prbs as well

one guy runs a ceo modded vspec and get 14 mins on a tank thats just crazy haha.


I love bryons fuel I just opt. for the first gen is all

hobby shop gold huh ? when properly tuned and piped , most engines get 10 minutes . just hard to rely on under hardcore racing applications
liverc.com look under results for lunsford cup gas blast 1/8th arena truck pro amain look at the winner

i used a 50/50 mix of old race3000 30/11 and new 30/9 pro racer fuel , seemed to be a great mix for me !

i ran all sorts of fuel, OD, Werks, Nitrotane and so on...this fuel has been awesome with all my motors, tune has been consistent, temps normal, runtime has been great, most of all i dont get a gummy residue like i get with nitrotane. Werks also leaves residue as thick as honey and i had to use after run oil with OD.

I stopped buying after run oil ever since i started running this fuel, i just empty my fuel tank, run the engine dry on the starter box and the fuel leaves a nice coat inside the engine, zero signs of rust.

Byrons did good!

I just switched from tornado to Byrons Gen 2. That was one of the best moves I made! My motors run a hell of alot cooler and the punch is great! My 928 in my truggy has never run hard at 200 degrees until Gen 2 came out. I have my second case on order!! Good stuff!

This seems odd to me, I just finished my 3rd gallon of gen2 25% in my C6. I tore my motor down this week for a cleaning after I read your post & found the insides to be cleaner than I have seen in the past. No residue or build up at all. I will continue to use this fuel as long as I can get it.

Default Engine Cuts off

Hi, I am having a problem where after switching from Gen 1, when I come into the pits after a few laps when I hit the brakes the car instantly cuts off.

It starts back without an issue but this problem never happened before until I switched to GEN 2 after being a loyal Gen1 user.

Any ideas guys?
