My vote is ByronGen2.. but you will just get vote's for what people use.. There is no BEST fuel. As long as you stick to the top brands you will be fine, And what you can get hold of easier..

Thumbs up

Come on guys............... we all know the best fuel is FREE fuel.......... as in I dont care what label is on it.. if it runs good and its free its the BEST

But honestly. what the other guy said......... as long as its a name brand and you can get it whenever you need it....... run it. Kinda like brand name motor oil nowadays...... its all good stuff.

i know you said 25% but theres not a huge difference between the two..I run trinity 30% platinum..i also run a speed,i have used trinity platinum for a few seasons now with no issues at all..tunes well..holds a nice idle,and best of all my engines and bearings look like brand new inside after lots of use..i have converted quite a few people over to this stuff

i do add the second copper head gasket for extra insurance and a little more run time on the 30% didnt notice a loss in power though

Ive been running Blue Thunder 20% since Ive read and heard it has a higher lubricating oil in it than the Trinity fuels. My buddy has the same ride switched to 25% Trinity Monster said it ripped and had to richen it up just a tad, all though he is switching back to Blue Thunder I take it he didnt like the Monster..just my 2 cents

i used blue thunder a long time ago and it wasnt bad but i like the trinity fuel better it runs pretty good cool too. the blue thunder to me it was to stroung it would burn the crap out of my eyes , they might of change their fomula now though.

gen 2 would be my second choice...

blue thunder is good stuff..more basher related..but safe fuel to use..the extra oil helps save your engines life in the event of a overly lean tune...but also increase the chance of flame outs and the engine loading up at low R's

If not lipo, then sidewinder.

a more playful outlook would be, 'the fuel thats in stock at ur shop when you wanna play'.

Switching to another fuel after break in and a few tanks afterwards, would that increase engine damage or should I stick to the same fuel I used for breakin?
