I prefer Texaco gasoline.

In my NITRO racecar, I use BK 30% and Byron's Race Formula 3000.

where do you guys get your BK from on a regular basis?

I haven't tried Byrons' formula 3000, but byron's race 20% felt like the only fuel I've tried that actually seemed slower in my car....too much oil, not enough oooomph!

i am using blue thunder race formula right now cause it was the only 30 i could find one day it has alot of oil or so it seems

i used to run the trinity fuels platnium 30 is awesome fuel i used it for a long time and never had any problems the engines look great afterward no carbon etc.

the blue thunder makes my engine piston turn black i am not sure if i am going to continue to use it or not on one hand more oil is a good thing on the other the trinity fuel runs cleaner and at the same needle settings is faster i had to lean out on blue thunder to get the same performance

odonnel i didnt like it turned everything it touched brown and ran exactly the same as trinity monster horsepower

Bryon Fuel! 1st-2nd-3rd at 1/8th Worlds and what Team Mugen use!

Its getting pretty expensive since no one distributes here.....

Use Novarossi blended fuel otherwise.

I've tried Blue Thunder, Trinity, Odonnel, and the Mugen stuff made by Byron. Of all these fuels, Blue Thunder was the worst: too much build up. I'll have to give top honors to Odonnel despite the "dog crap" color it turns everything into. I switched from 20% Odonnel to Mugen(Byron) 30% and I hardly noticed a difference. The best all around fuel would be Byron since it runs clean and provides great power.

from what I see most of the really experienced non-sponsored guys that don't have to run a certain fuel run BK. I haven't seen where too many of the fuels made a noticeable difference except for byron's 20 was sluggish to me and BK the little I had felt really good.
