Default Tilted Fuel

Is anyone using this fuel now? If so, how is it? I am thinking about trying it and the prices are really quite good!

There was a thread here a long time ago about it, if I remember right, people liked it a lot.

and yeah, it is very very cheap. I think you can get 4 gallons for 99$... Better than paying 39 a gallon for nitrotane

Prices are up to $110 a case. I remember seeing it as low as $60 a case. I dont think china should be allowed to host the olympics ever again, at least not if they are going to be doing things like limiting nitro. I wonder how many people in china lost their jobs because the nitro making plants were being slowed down.

yeah, the olympics was looking iffy there a few days ago due to the smog there, it was ridiculous, crazy chinese people walking around with masks on their faces.

On a normal day in hong kong the smog level is .020, a few days ago it was .168.. they were threatening to cancel the olympics, china has pulled thousands of cars off the road. they are slowly killing themselves and overpopulating the world.

and yes, I use tilted green and it works awesome, I love it and its cheaper than anything else out there

Ya I am really interested in this fuel and I just wanted to get a second opinion. So far, it seems like a high quality alternative to the more established fuel brands.

I have ran both Tilted Clear and Tilted Green.

Both run excellent and tune very well in all my engines.


Tilted is a high quality fuel just like any of the major name brands......

You can pick it up at Tiltedrc.com

I can't run odonell because of the fumes. They are worse than any fuel I have ever ran. I used to only run sidewinder 30% and then when Homer released his Tilted fuel I made the switch to his fuel and haven't looked back. The Tilted fuel is top notch stuff and it doesn't stink badly like some fuels do.

Tilted green is great fuel. I run it in all my modded motors
and have never had any problems. I have already stocked
up a couple gallon cases and I'm going to be ordering more
soon. Don't listen to what Integru has to say,I don't, he
jumps on every thread and bad mouths everything all the
time. We have learned to just ignore him.

I know nothing about tilted fuel but I do hate dyed fuels. Leave the pretty colors out of it.

That's why Homer sells Tilted Green AND Tilted Clear.

That way the people who don't like dyed fuels can run the clear and the others who like to be able to see the fuel level easy can run the green.

I've ran both and they both to me run the same. I'm only a basher and slight racer so I'm not good enough to be able to distinguish between the two on the track. I think Homer tested it and the clear gave engines a few hundred more rpm's than the green.
