The 25% comes in 11% oil in the Race forumla or 9% oil in the Pro Driver. Its on the label on the fuel .

Powermaster is not out of buisness. VP Racing fuel purchased Powermaster and is now producing the fuel. They reformulated the car fuel and it is really good stuff. Have your hobby shop order new fuel from them. You will like it.

I like the A-main by Massive Mods. No offense to Mark but when you first look at it, it looks a little generic. But it's very good fuel. The 25% is what I run and I really like it. Just another suggestion.

I have used sidewinder and odonnell and Byrons, Byrons is my favorite, sidwinder second. Did not like odonnell. Cold fusion I have limited experience, but seemed ok. My vote is for Byrons.

So it's still being sold as Powermaster but now owned by VP?

There is no BEST fuel. I dont believe that one fuel is better than others. Ive seen 30% dynamite powered buggy beat a 40% byrons or sidewinder powered buggy. its up to you and what you like...
