Default Losi Nitrotane 30%

I am thinking about using this fuel with my new Novarossi plus4 as I can get locally from LHS by the case..............If you use this fuel, please share your thoughts about blending consistency, temps, power and how your internals are looking........thanks! TW

Good fuel. Made by one of the best racing fuel manufactuers in the world, VP fuels.

Only thing I didnt like about it was there wasnt much smoke out of the pipe with this fuel. Temps were good and engine wear was good but I constantly had to remind myself of the reason there was not much smoke, the fuel. And for some reason Nitrotane stings your eyes worse than some other fuels when it comes from the pipe. Only reason I stopped using it was because of avalibility.

Thumbs up

Good stuff. Seems to burn really clean. Reasonable temps. Good mileage. No complaints here.

Nitrotane is good stuff. I have tried a few different fuels, and kept going back to Losi or Byrons Gen2. Both are great. Personally, I would go with what you have consistent access to.
Losi fuel has always been consistent from gallon to gallon. I have never had any issues with it.
