Looks like ordering online isn't an option. Because glow fuel is HAZMAT, the shipping charges are prohibitively expensive. I will have to find a fuel I can buy from a shop I can drive to.

Default Why order fuel online

I really cannot understand why companies even offer fuel online anymore. With the HazMat charge (and shipping) it costs at least $5-10 more per gallon to buy this way than it does at the LHS.
I think that you can get Quarts without paying for HazMat shipping, but Quarts are usually 20-30% more expensive than buying in gallons.

I think a better question would be what's not so good about it.

It's that good huh, what do you use it on? Why do you like it so much ? The reason I ask is I am just curious.

I used to fly R/C planes. I had a plane that was a very high performace A/C, and it had an O.S. 40 SF engine with a tuned pipe. This was a very high RPM, high performance engine. I ran nothing but Byron's fuel in this engine, and it always ran perfect, and I never had to mess with the carb settings. I never experienced corrosion problems either, and I didn't have to use after run oil.

I ran Byron's in all of my nitro engines with the same results. Everyone I knew also ran Byron's with similar results.

Granted, this was over 10 years ago, and glow fuels may have even improved over that time, but if Byron's is at least as good now as it was then, I would gladly use it myself and recommend it to others.
