Default Improving Nitro %

Perhaps there is an obvious answer i missed, but just asking because I havent found it yet Is there anyway to improve nitro percentage? I.E, taking a 15% to a 20%? Without perhaps getting a 25% gallon and mixing it with the 15% to dilute it (both gallons to 20%)? hope that made sense, haha.

Just buy the percentage you want, why bother with mixing?

I think what he means is can he buy pure NitroMethane and add it to his fuel to increase the percentage...No, you cannot, but you can do what you thought about mixing 30% with 10% to get 20%, you must mix equal parts though..Airplane fuel comes up to 80% Nitro, so you can mix it up to a high percentage if you want

Yes you can but you also have to add oil to keep the percent correct.
