Default Rapicon Fuel?

Hey, Spring is on it's way and im braking in my new engine. So i buying about 10-12L so it will last i while... My local hobby shop only have sidewinder 25% and dynamite sport 30% that is pretty expencive... But when i was surfing i saw The Rapicon fuel 25%/11.5 lub. it was a discount 4x4l shipped home for 125.85 USD.(and shipping flameble items in norway is 20 bucks!) So i was wondering if this is a good fuel? anyone that have tried it? Or should i stick to the known brands?

lot of drivers here in the Philippines have been using the fuel. I personally think its a good value for money fuel and doesnt have any significant power disadvantages. One thing about this fuel is that it leaves the piston and sleeve clean after a full raceday.

Our local disti dropped Rapicon in favour of Byron. I think it's OK basic fuel. If I'd need to select between the original poster options I'd take Sidewinder. If they are discounting the Rapicon do you know if it's old batch from last season or something ?
