I agree with this - I am running Sidewinder race blend, and it is a great fuel. It also has the added benefit of not needing to use after-run oil - this seems to help a lot if you have problems with the one-way bearing slipping in your engine.

sidewinder smells like bar-b-q mmmm.
On the topic of XP I found there old stuff to be far far to oily and warm running.If they dropped the oil content down to 10-12% with a good castor to synth blend it could be good fuel.
