I found "Nitro Juice 30/10" here in Dallas and I love this stuff. Very consistent from one gallon to the next. I used O'donnals in the past, but it left too much residue inside the engine case.

blue thunder 20% race formula. Cheaper then most and all of my engines last pretty long with it.

TILTED GREEN 30%, I have burned six gallons so far
and I LIKE IT!!! Homer and Lisa at Tilted RC sell this
great fuel at a great price. I will be ordering a few
more cases soon.
