What is the best way to add oil to your fuel if you want a little extra?
Performance wise i was happy with O'Donnells but i cant take the fumes either. Theres nothing worse than being in pit lane with too many people running O'Donnell fuel. My eyes start tearing and my nose start to tingle. Not that any of these fuels are good for your health, this one seems the worst.

I know what you are talking about...Pitting for a few drivers at the PNB I had to turn away a few times...

I feel the same way about O'Donnell. I use Byron most of the time.

I know i don't need the extra oil, just something i want to do.

i am thinking 20% nitro 18% oil.

btw, what is the other 62% made of in the nitro?
Alcohol

I've had great luck with OD30%. I'm interested in getting my hands on S&W fuel to try out.

Default 30%

I think 30% nitro is overkill. Especially in pro driver or team blends, or prototype. That just means there is less oil, and that's not good. I recommend byrons gen2 25% with 11% oil. It's the best mix I've seen yet. Plenty of power but no dangers. I've been racing Nitro buggies for 20 years so take it or leave it......
