i have never heard of it or used it.. be cautious of fuel that is mixed by an individual in small quantities.. it can be inconsistent and make it hard to hold a tune..

LOL.

Wildcat fuel is hardly mixed by in small quantities. Its a company that mixes alot of plane and heli fuel and a very good car fuel. They make Trinity's nitro fuel.

Wildcat takes the "race" blend and the "sport" blend they do for trinity and makes his own in the middle and sells it with the wildcat logo. its good stuff.

I've been running the 20% for a while now. No complaints other than they add an odorizer to the fuel that makes it smell sweet.

Incidentally, I took the backplate off of my engine recently and the internals were VERY clean. This is the first motor that I've run the Wildcat fuel on ever since break-in.

At my LHS, the 20% is selling for $24.00 a gallon so the price is right too.

I have been running Wildcat fuels for over a year. I run the 30% race blend. I have had no problems with glow plugs or keeping the motor in tune. I think it is a great fuel and they make a lot of fuels for other companys.
