Default Where to order fuel from cheapest?

I want to buy cases and have tried many different brands. So I am open to try pretty much any brand I want to know where to get some good 30% race mail ordered the cheapest to Erie Pa. I usually have to drive 45 minutes away and never know whats there or if its going to be $25-$42. I am tired of that.

Tilted Fuel is based out of VA and is available online at Tiltedrc.com

TQ Fuel is based out of MD and can be purchased from their website.

Ive used both and they are both quality fuels. I havent tried the EB mods fuel but it should also be top quality stuff and he is based out of PA.

I would suggest getting ahold of Chad at Trinity. Great service. He will take care of you. And they should any fuel you need to get.

That's like six different brands of fuel how many choices are you looking for? Most places really charge for the hazmat fee's so my suggestion is to use one of those given and pick it up.

exactly there is gonna be hazmat, if you pick it up from local supplier that will being your best deal since you wont be paying hazmat, there really isnt a huge mark up on fuel, you wont see a huge difference in price from supplier to supplier, the base materials cost them all the same price

Unless you pick up the fuel from where it was made you are likely going to pay hazmat. Just because you drove to the store to get it doesnt mean hazmat isnt already in the price. Shops have to pay that same hazmat to get the fuel shipped to them and they are likely to factor that into the cost of the fuel on the shelf.
