I know folks running both, both are good, you can't go wrong with either. I used to run Byron's Gen 1, even that was pretty good stuff.

I run Byrons 20% gen 2. I havent had any problems as of yet. But I do have a question about running 20% for racing what would I gain going to 30%?

you hear bad stories about what ?

gonorrhea?

why would you switch to something you "hear bad stories" about?

you will not find a more consistent blended fuel anywhere in the world

have you heard the stories about torco
i dont have a problem its been good for me and it will continue to be ran in my rtr motors.

but some people say the gen 2 fuel is very inconsistent, and what not, thats why they run the older hobby shop gold fuel what he has left anyways.

oh i have seen the stories you speak of first hand with torco fuels .

i have no idea where the inconsistent stories about byrons are coming from but i have never had 1 bad gallon out of 100's if not thousands of gallons that i have used or distributed

i can tell you that if you leave any fuel in a heated environment or on a concrete floor it will not last long

I am going to run Byron's in my new JX.21 for the up coming race season. LOL I want to see what all the hype is about. I am sure it will be awesome. I am running O'Donnell at the moment and have nothing bad to say about it. But in order to see if there is a better out there you have to try different brands.

Back when Ty Tessman made the switch from O'Donnell to Byron's I asked him what fuel he like better. He said Byron's ran cooler so he was able to lean the motor out more and therefore get better run time (He said about 30 seconds). Now of coarse this is coming from a person who is sponsored by Byron's so take it for what it's worth. But from the feedback on these forums I can easily see it being true.

But from some people at our track that were running Werks they seemed to really like it.

So just curious as you are a person actively involved in the rc industry with your mail order/modification business and you posted that. The OP's question was specifically what peoples thoughts were about the difference between our fuel versus Byrons, what were your findings when you tested them back to back?

i have ran many gallons/types of fuel including yours ron

the two best fuels for power on the market IMO are odonnell and werks

the best package as far as lubrication/power/engine protection is byrons

I have not one thing bad to say about anything your doing Ron but look at the big picture , it speaks for itself


the newer fuels are geared more towards power than engine protection so i recommend using after run oil after your done with your engine for the day .
rbmods after run oil is an excellent product


and i will agree with your comments about back to back differences you posted in another thread
