Thanks for all the info guys, I plan on visiting my local hobby shop on the weekend to get some fuel and other bits and peices. Looks like we all recomend a 25%-30% nitro mix. I also need to get some spare glow plugs and a filler bottle and a glow plug ingniter and one of those tools to take out the glow plug in case I flood it.

Other than that everything came in the kit I got from ebay. Reciever is pretty crappy though but for the price I paid I cant complain.

Thanks again.

Went to my local hobby shop last night, bought a starter pack and some fuel, also got some after run oil.

My hobby shop make their own fuel (they say its fresher that way) so I bought 4 litres 20% mix, which is what they recomended I use.

I plan on starting it for the first time tonight and run a couple of tanks, then run a few more tommorow and hopefully its fully run in.

I would be cautious about that "hobby shop special" fuel. Quality fuel is extremely important. I'm not saying that the shop doesn't make good fuel(because I don't know), but just be cautious.
