Default Tower Hobbies Premium fuel any good?

Any comments on this fuel in 15% Nitro?

I don't race or anything...just for playing around. It's quite a bit cheaper than O-donnel and other name brand fuels.

BTW, its for an Ofna Hyper .21 and a RB Concepts S7 .21 motor.

Thanks!
John

Question...why buy cheap fuel for an expensive engine? It will all go back to your engine.

I figure Tower would put out a good fuel. Also, I doubt Tower makes it, so it's probably a RE-Label of a name brand fuel.

Thanks!

I would make sure that the fuel is ment for cars. I bet the fuel you are looking at is airplane fuel. Most car fuel in the States starts at 20% nitro. If it is airplane fuel you do not want to run it in your car engine..

jvannghi;

1) Make sure you ONLY use fuel designed for R/C Cars.

2) By the time you add shipping charges that fuel isn't such a good deal anymore.

For playing, Blue Thunder or Traxxas fuels are slightly cheaper than the rest. Quarts are more expensive per gallon, than buying a Gallon to begin with.

I wouldn't flake out on fuel, buy a well known brand. I don't mean to put tower down or anything, but they have far less experience than O'donnell, trinity, or widcat. I would reccoemend getting trinity monster fuel. They make a great fuel that is very consistant from quart to quart.
