Default Is this a good fuel?

I am on a very tight budget. Do you think that this is a good fuel for bashing. For my racing I plan on going with a well known brand.

Yes S&W Trophy blend is top notch. The oil Stan uses in trophy blend is the new industry standard. I switched from byrons gen. II and couldn't be happier.

This is the fuel I will be going with in the future. Thanks for helping again malik.

Too bad I already ordered 2 quarts of the S&W fuel. Not too much cheaper than getting 6 quarts from ebmods. Dang I am alway too much in a hurry.

The seller refunded my $$ for the ebay fuel. I just placed my order for the eb mods 30% fuel and it only charged me $45 shipped for 6 qts. Maybe a glitch in the system but it did not charge me shipping.

This fuel is made by the same people that make, EB Mods fuel, TQ I think and a few others if Im not mistaken. This new blend I hear is better but back in the day when I just bashed I ran S&W and found it to be inconsistant from gallon to gallon.

Those prices are crazy expensive. I get Byron's Gen 2 30% at my LHS for $28 a gallon.

$45 for 6qt's (1.5 gal.) is more like it.
