Wildcat makes fuel for at least a couple different companies. It's all good stuff.

Appreciate it much. A few people have said that they've had temp problems, and encouraged me to stay away from it, but I'm going to give it a shot

Its the same as HPI fuel. I've used to for over a year now, seems great to me. Doesn't stink to all heck like Werks, and it doesn't dye everything it touches yellow.

i never heard of it, but with a name like that it sounds like cats pi$$ sorry its an old British "phrase", at a guess if its got 14% oil it should be good, but then it depends if the oil blend is of good quality.

I don't have any experience with Wildcat's namesake fuel, but like Wheelnut said...the stuff they make for other companies is really good, so there's no reason their own fuel would be any different.

I would leave your fuel somewhere besides the basement. Nitro fuel actually pulls in moisture, so it wouldn't take long in a damp basement to go.


It has been 2-3 years ago but I remember a friend of mine had just purchased a new RC10GT RTR and used Wildcat fuel. Within the first two tanks, the head gasket was leaking. I am not saying the fuel was the problem, could have very well been the truck.

I used to store mine in the basement.

The biggest thing is to make sure you have it in a place with a constant temperature. Don't store it in a garage, don't store it near heating & cooling vents. If you must store it somewhere with a concrete floor - put a wooden board between the bottle and the floor. Also if you can, keep that red inner seal for long term storage.

I also wrapped my fuel in a garbage bag.
