Default Wildcat fuel? makers of Trinity and Odonnell fuel

Does anybody have any opinions or who has used Wildcat Eliminator car fuel?
I know that they make Trinity ,hpi and Odonnell fuel and others ,but how is there own brand of fuel.
They make the Eliminator fuel in three oil % 10,14 AND 18.
I use byrons Gen2 fuel now, but iam wondering about the Wildcat fuel.
ALL opinions are welcome ,i would like to here from people who have used it too.It is a little cheaper than byrons and a lot cheaper than odonnell .Also sense they make odonnell how close is the Eliminator to the Odonnell fuel.


thank you

SAC

I have used Wildcat in my Helicopters and it is a great fuel. It is very popular. I have been wanting to try the car fuel, but nobody around here carry's it. Good stuff.

i think (currect me if im wrong) wildcat fuel is made by the Morgan fuel company. (same people who make Sidewinder aswell as some other brands)

i do believe trinity makes there own fuel.

i know odonnell makes there own fuel though.

Only going by what i was told by somebody that works for Wildcat ,that the make the Odonnell fuel to OD specs.Tony you say they don't make it,then who does makes it for Odonnell?.considering Odonnell is a division of Great Planes dist and not a seperate company .

CHogle
NO,Wildcat fuels in NOT part of Morgan Fuels .Wildcat is a division of CAE company,according to there website.


keep the comments/info coming..

thanks

There is a Duratrax logo on the side of the Odonnell jug. Not sure how that plays into the mix.

wildcat fuel does make trinity fuels not sure about adonnell but wildcat is out of nicholasville ky and they are their own company. my brothers buddy works there and i lived there for a few years. they do make a number of brands though.

I've been running the Eliminator 20% since last summer. I haven't tore an engine all the way down yet but I have opened up one that's been running Wildcat and it's very clean inside - no gum, gunk, or buildup of any kind. I haven't even had to change a glow plug since I've been running Wildcat.

Overall, I'm pretty happy with the fuel. I plan to stick with it at least until I finish the case I've got now.

Great to finally hear from someone who uses Wildcat Eliminator fuel on a daily basis.I talked to a couple of people who have run it and the say the had great luck with it ,but had to switch another brand because there local shop stop carring it .Due to not selling enough,not due to any issue's with it.
Another shop got in to try it because the carried Wildcat plane fuel but would only get the car fuel if people ordered by the case.

Anyone else use this fuel please post ..

I bought my last case from Tower...

http://www3.towerhobbies.com/cgi-bin...?&I=LXA319&P=7

But I can get Byrons 20 or 25% cheaper at AMain so unless the Wilcat price drops or my local hobby shop starts carrying the Wildcat again, I'll probably by a case of Byron's and try it out.

Tony is correct.

Wildcat, blends and bottles several popular RC nitro fuels, but O'Donnell IS NOT one of them !
