I used Byron's in my airplane engines since it first came out, and have been using Byron's Race Formula 3000 with great results for the past year. A look inside the engines shows no deposits or tinting of any kind. Mugen duel is the same as Byron's, too.

If your in the UK and going fast then you most likely running the Pink Power. It has been the best fuel around since the early days.

I'd give Tornado a go before you commit to Pink Power, deanspoons. We compared 16% Pink Power to 16% Tornado back to back a few months ago in a hand mod X12, and Tornado was the faster fuel. Runs cleaner and allows you to run the engine leaner. Also, less oil was present inside the case after strip down - maybe not ideal for background bashers who strive for maximum engine life, but this is what contributes to it running crisper and cleaner. I've heard rumors that team drivers get "team blend" Pink Power which isn't available to the public, and i think you'll find that this has less oil, just like the standard Tornado.

The Tornado fuels that we get here seems to have more oil in it. Colour is also more yellow than it used to be. It seems that they have changed their fuel contents. Has anyone noticed it?

Also, people who have been running Tornado fuels all along from day one have commented that the supposedly newer blend allows them to run at a leaner carb setting than the older blend.
