I usually dont go by any one brand of fuel... I personally think its all hype. What I do do is read the lable... in my opinion, if a manufacturer isnt willing to detail what exactly is in the fuel, I wont use it.

The blend I look for is 15% nitro, 5% castor and 5% synthetic. If the bottle just says 10% lubricant I stay clear.

I use O'Donnel 20% - good solid name, good solid gas.

I use O'donnel too but I've tried that BK stuff and it's very good, just too much trouble to get hold of.

I used Blue THunder's regular formula(non-Race blend) in my Pirate 10 buggy for years. It held my OFNA .15 engine together and well lubricated through years of use.

For my new nitro sedan, I plan on trying Trinity 20%. Their regular juice, not their "Platinum blend".

Default Randon Poll: What brand of gas do you use?

For the last 3+ Years.

Trinity Monster Horsepower, Power Blend, 20% & 30%.

NEVER a problem, good power, cool running, no engine deposits or gumming. A little more expensive than the rest.
