Justin,

Who told that we are going to be backordered?? Dan didn't make an order untill Minday morning. Rich told me tonight that Dan said that we will be getting fuel in but cost went up $6 a gallon but we should have fuel in stock by the end of the week.

I talked to Byrons today. They did a run of 30 a while back and still have some but it is getting short. They will not be running any more 30 until another shipment of Nitro comes.

By the way, Dow (Angus) is still making nitro. They have not shut down. They stopped selling to the NHRA in 2006 for safety concerns but swore to continue supplying RC so many of us thought fuel from US suppliers would be no problem. Problem is with the lack of Chinese Nitro Angus is having to pick up the slack leaving a lot less available to us.

I read an article from a head honcho at VP. He actually stated that they sell more nitro for industrial AND HOBBY USE then they do for drag racing but because NHRA is such big business they have had to hold all they have for them. Kind of made me proud to hear that RC is such a major player in nitro economics. Too bad we don't have the NHRA's financial clout.

Thre is a shortage right now. Shops are being forced to raise prices becuase peolple are rushing to stock. This is done to keep stock on hand until supplies come back around. Stop hordeing (sp) and things will level back out. Prices are going up an average of 6 to 7 a gallon it looks like.

If your worried about fuel than just order some TQ and make the switch. The fuel is awesome and there will be no shortage of it.

My lhs got a letter from byron`s..It said that the price is going to be going up and that fuel will still be avaiable but not as much as there use to be.....Lhs said it will be over $30 for a gallon of 30%....As of last weekend he had 10-15 cases of 30% and was selling cases for $100(special offer)....When the next shipment comes in the price will change......

Why all the concern over this supposed fuel shortage? Do you really need to run 30%? I believe in Europe they are eliminating 30%, which in my estimation means the end of it here. I could be wrong about that. But it is what I have heard on message boards.
Anyhow, I run 20% and am plenty competitive. My engines last, less nitro equals less stress on your motor. It seems like a waste of money. I need my motors to last as long as possible.
just my $0.02

I don't know who you are talking to but you are right and wrong. I can't speak for everybody but Byrons has stopped blending 30% but this is only until they get another Nitro shipment. That could be next month, it might be October but once they get it there will be 30% again.
