Default Mixing Fuel

I have a fuel question, I have a few inches left in a werks gallon and a few inches left in a OD gallon. Can I mix them together to get me through 1 more race. They are both 30%, but I did notice I had to lean my engine out about 1/2 turn when I switched to OD, what does that mean?

Why not just give it to the kid down the street and buy some new stuff?

No kids around me that are into RC, its just video games these days with them.


I'm just trying to go one more race day without having to buy fuel I guess. This is a expensive hobby, track is 1.5 hours away, and I'm not rich. Trying to make every dollar count and go as far as possibe in these hard times.
