One thing I'm curious about, will my run time decrease dramatically with 30 because I had to fatten it up so much?

I might end up switching back to 20% from 30, its cheaper.

buddy of mine ran out of fuel, which he normally runs OD 30%, so i told him to buy 20 since the local hobby shop ran out and he should be fine. we both didnt see much of a difference in performance, his temps differed slightly, but nothing major at all, his runtime was about the same as well.

i might just switch to 20% for my next batch and see how it goes.

if you are just bashing, i say run what you can get at a better price, if it be OD, Byrons, Werks

I already got that 'fatten' means to richen from another post... but what is the reference to '3 hours?' ...Is that how long it took you to tune it?

If you look at your needles like the face of a clock, then you can imagine where the 'hours' would fall. Thats what we use as a guide to tune. So 6 hours would be a 1/2 turn on your needle. You never want to turn your needles more than 1 - 2 hours at a time.
