Default BYRONS GEN2 FUELS , POST YOUR RESULTS!!

if you are a believer in byrons fuels as i am , lets hear your stories guys !!

whether the stories are good , bad or ugly , lets hear em

my personal findings are as follows , unsurpassed lubrication properties , true 6% castor oil blend ( very important!! ) , never a bad gallon EVER!!! , easy to tune and runs like a champ !!

from an engine builders stand point , internals are well protected , well lubed and look great when engine is torn down

happy motorin',
monty


i like to share a good high quality product , byron fuels is definitely one of them , i dont get anything for free from byrons nor would i expect anything by starting this thread other than hearing your guys' real world feedback on this product

+1 for Byrons Gen 2 Fuels.

There are very few products I actually believe in....

1 of those is my Tekin gear... The other is Byron's Gen 2 Fuels.

I switched to it after running ODonnel and noticed a MASSIVE change in my equipment.

Cooler running, Easier more consistent tunes, truly better performance all around.

I run the Pro Driver 30%... LOVE THIS FUEL!

The fuel tunes well, makes good power, and gets good fuel economy. However I lost the main bearings in two engines within a gallon of switching and the p/s life seemed shorter compared to OD fuel. My results matched up pretty well with several others in my area who ran it.

Ill explain it like this. I could have taken a fuel deal, but I would rather pay retail for Byrons.

are you chocking up the bearing failure to the byrons fuel?

interesting , i have found quite the opposite to be true

did the fuel happen to be old stock at the hobby shop?
were the bearings faulty ?


i will definitely say that odonnell makes greatttt power for sure
