Stephan, I know Byron makes Mugen fuel, but I think Mugen fuel has slightly less oil. I may be wrong, that's just how it seems. Running both, one tank of mugen and then one tank of Byron's immediately after. Anyone know for sure?
that's easy to find out.
Just put a precise amount of each fuel in a small dish (lid of a pickle jar) and heat it up (toaster oven) for at least 2 hours at around 100 C.
After that all the VOC (Methanol and Nitromethane) will have evaporated and you can weigh how much oil is left.
You gotta be precise though, since 2% difference is hard to catch if you don't have a precise scale.
I did a few fuel sample in our lab and I can tell you that the manufacturers numbers are sometimes not even close
One more reason to make my own...
