They want to know about fuel, not about your trip to ATL or how your always in last in your heats and the main.

I mostly run tq fuels, Which I must say I really like. I have a new rb s7 l2g and broke it in on 30% tq fuel. It runs great on tq but I wanted to try the new gen 2 fuel. A guy at my track had a case of 25% gen with 11% oil. I couldnt get it to run very well with it. Made good power but would flame out with it, not sure why, but the rb isnt even a gallon old yet not sure if that has something to do with it. Crazy thing is I went back to tq fuel and it stopped flaming . Any suggestions?

Just a thought but I would suspect that the cooler fuel with the lower percentage would require a hotter plug. Flame outs generally come from the plug coil getting too cold to stay red hot. If you're making a change try the next plug up in temp and see how it goes.
