My top 3 are
EB Mods..
Werks..
Byrons..

out of all I have tried they are easy to tune and get good run times.. Eds fuels gets me a little longer run times than both byrons and werks but they are still great fuels...

I know a lot of people use them but my bottom 2 are Sidewinder and O.Donnell, but thats just my opinion..

Oh and all were 30%

EB Mods fuel where do you get it? My friend is using byrons and he said the motors are not lasting as long 2-3 gallons but he is also running a speed motor so there known for compression lost after that but he was using werks and he said the motors were lasting longer but I thought werks had less oil content then byron's

they all use different kinds of oils , its not always about percent/content as it is about the quality of the content

most all these fuels are good high quality fuels anymore , you must look at the overall package the fuel has to offer and make your decision

Byrons have been very consistent and my engine runs cooler than the fuel i was running before.

over here in Australia we dont get much of the fuel you guys get in the states (Byrons werks etc) and if we do its a bit exy eg. Sidewinder $70 a gal but recently AT produced a fuel called Platinum it is yellow in colour and has produced great power consistently for 6 months now "best fuel yet, i say" and cleanest internals of a motor i have ever seen, they look absolutely new/ polished.

I use Byron's because it leaves the motor in excellent condition. I run speed motors and have gotten quite a bit of fuel through them with no problems. It may be harder to get here in Hawaii because there are only two shops that carry it and one of them charges 35 bucks for a gallon of 20%!

there will be many opinion here ..so heres mine
for the first 4 years i had run byrons 30% ..this year i switched to sidewinder 30% worlds blend (local hobby shop closed forced me to change) i could not have been happier with it ..now i have made the switch to sidewinder team strike (the new purple prototype fuel) ...a little more run time and the same great lubrication package ....cant say enough good things about sidewinder ..just my .02 byrons ,sidewinder,ebmods,nitrotane,even trinity, all good fuels just dont go with anything outside the main stream ..or you and your engine might get burned ..stick with the mainstream brands and you will be fine
