Thanks pop, got it. I just got some old fuel and don't want to waste it, so use it as engine cleaner.

Following are interesting question and answer section between me and one of our biggest local track:

=====
OK.

First of all. I'm not asking for exchange. It is cheap and not cost effective for me to bring it for exchange. I just want to make sure the fuel is bad or not so as to prevent my expensive engine got damaged!

This is the first time I buy Blue thunder so, I don't know exactly what the color should like. Actually, what I saw in your ACO office is all green color. One of my friend also got green color too.

Now I know what is your business practice and will make sure I will let as many as possible people know your practice.

Thanks for your reply.

It's going to be in the Airplane fuel section. Most larger HS's carry it. Cleans the crud off even better than the DN Alcohol.
If they sell it at home depot I will be trying this next. thanks for the tip pops

I was at Home Depot just the other day and I didn't find any Methanol on the shelves.
Take a REAL good look in the Airplane fuel section at your LHS. There should be at least 1 or 2 gallons in there with the regular fuel. You can also buy the oils seperatly.

BTW, where are you located, what state?

A little more difficult carb tunning is very possible, but if you're a hardcore eye-candy guy, go for it, eveyone knows that green fuel is better and your car run more and more cool.

i really like the trinity platnium fuel better but sometimes i cant get it

and my engine has been modded so i was thinking less chance of corrosion with all that blue thunder oil

Don't know about trinity fuels, I custom blend my own fuel with Klotz lubricants and straight nitro and methanol. I move the oil percentable depending what I want or the wheater conditions.
