Default Couple fuel questions

Any idea on the shelf life of an unopened bottle of fuel (30% O'donnel)?

I havent run nitro in a few years but I was a big fan of Blue Thunders race formula when I was running. Is it still a very high quality fuel? I noticed they have a 1/8 specific blend now, any benefit to using it over the race formula or another brand?

Wasn't the old, good,"Blue thunder" really just "White Lightning" with blue die added?

if thats the case you'd be happy with Trinity Monster or Wilcat Eliminator(same thing).

I prefere Morgan Fuels Sidewinder 20/12 or 30%Worlds blend.

I have no clue what it was but I preferred it over O'donnel (usually 10 degrees cooler with snappier throttle response). Dont think I've ever ran anything else.

Shelf life depends on how it was store. If lid has been tight and it been stored where it has expanded and contracted the catainer it will be ok for years. Safe thing is purchase new few.
