I like the Byrons 30/11. I find that you must use the appropriate plug for the engine, or that fuel will kill plugs repeatedly.

I killed 4 P3s in a row, as soon as I put a P4 in, it lasted a gallon.

Ive used 25% in the following brands:
Monster Juice,
Tornado,
Byrons Race Gen 2
Optifuel

So far, the Optifuel is proving the best performance vs cost. Byrons was probably the better performance wise, only very slightly, but is quite expensive in the UK. Monster was "ok" and Tornado was pants.

You will not find a more consistent fuel than byrons. 30/11 for everyday running and 30/9 for bigger races . Byrons will also stay fresh for quite a while as long as its not stored in the sun .



Plus ryan godberson is a super cool guy .


Happy motorin,
Monty

We are using Eric Vasutins "Prime racing fuel"

Predictable, easy to tune, great run time with low temps, tastes great & less filling.

+1 on the Nitro Juice.

Plus I love to support local guys, since the fuel is from a local Racer.

I agree Cold Fusion 30% magic blend is the best fuel you can get.
