Ive used the Race Blend for 4 years straight. Always perfect, always the same from gallon to gallon. He also makes several other brands of fuel for other companies.

I used to go to his house and pick it up, thats when I could get it for $10.00 a gallon. It is very good fuel, now i just order Byron's or werks fuel from amain because it's about the same price when you break it down. I think S&W is $25.00-$30.00 now

One of the best I have used, we are running them down here in Kuwait, and extreme weather conditions and they run perfect.

That's like asking the Sprudewood team if Losi is a good car, or Tebo if Kyosho is good...I want opinions from the average Joe on there experience with this fuel.

Most people aren't aware of it, BUT...S&W has been blending nitro since 1975, and are THE largest manufacturer of fuel on the east coast!!!

Many other fuel companies have solicited S&W's services over the years, to help them with their own products, and S&W has become industry renowned for their ability to create cutting edge fuel, as well as custom blends for everything including RC cars, boats, planes, helis, etc...

I was approached by a gentleman at this years Motorama race, as a result of wearing a S&W sweatshirt. It turns out, he was in the business of testing different types of fuels. He proceeded to tell me about how amazing S&W was during his testing of nitro model fuels. After testing EVERY nationally recognized brand of nitro racing fuel, S&W was by FAR the superior fuel.

I won't mention any brand names here, other than tell you that S&W's 'trophy blend' rivaled the 2nd overall company quite handily, under lab conditions, as well as practical and theoretical testing. One example was that under identical conditions, the S&W fuel ran 3mph faster than the next best fuel, and if that's not incredible enough...it did 3mph faster running 20 degrees cooler!!!

S&W Fuels works in conjunction with another of it's companies called Synthetic Performance Lubricants (http://www.splube.com/whosusingit.html), and through this alliance, S&W is able to access the worlds most advanced lubricants and other oil based products. Combine that with 35 years of making nitro fuel, and what you have is a product that's nothing short of extraordinary!

I understand that S&W isn't one of the hobby's most recognizable fuels, but all of that is going to be changing in 2010. Through an exciting, and complex new marketing plan, as well as a 35 year head start, S&W will be making a mark on the industry. Of this, I'm sure!

I've gotten a lot of PM's inquiring about S&W. That's cool! I hope they answer all your guys' questions.

The fuel would come by the case in quarts.$80 a case for 20% Nitro and $92 a case for 30% Nitro shipped via Fed-X.Price includes shipping to CA.If your planning on putting in a larger order now or in the future the price would be better. Here's the link to order fuel sales@s-whobby.com
Place your order fill out all the information, name, address, phone number. S&W will contact you for payment when your order is ready to ship.
