i think a lot of people were having problems (including team drivers) because of the same issue you are having .

i also think there is a reason 99.9% of the top fuel brands are using plastic containers


does your local hobby shop go through much fuel?
nitrotane is in plastic nowadays. and byrons adds dye. gross, dirty.

I bought a used motor off a local guy who had run something in his motor that left an orangy/creamy colored film everywhere in the motor. I'm not sure what he used but the film wiped off pretty easily. I run Byrons and my motors are always nice and clean inside except for my ARO.

I'm not sayin', but I'm just sayin'.

depends how it is stored, if kept in cool dark place will last anywhere up to 12-18 months, if left in direct sun then cooled etc etc not long at all..
