It's not ideal changing fuel - you can change downwards, but you can't go back up.

Long-term, it's best you stick to one fuel. Now the mistake is done, there's not alot you can do. However, if you intend to run 20% from now on, you should be fine. Or you could stick with 30% and ensure the head clearance is correct for that amount of nitro.

Blue Thunder is a fuel often scorned by nitro 'experts'. Certainly, I've heard some horror stories. For racing, you might be better off finding some alternatives and give your engine a sporting chance of making it past the 1 gallon mark!

O'Donnell, Tornado, Elite 'Pink Power', Supa Glo, are all fuels I've used on various engines and can personally recommend. Trinity fuels are very good from what I've been told.
