P.S: If you are in OZ, give a try to RunnerTime, I know some aussies that after giving a try to it for the worlds, switched to it.

BTW: RunnerTime is only Castor oil based so your engines will get a toasted look, don't worry for this, try it and look how the engine remains after using it... you will not need After Run never more.
Been there done that.....
Also with Runnertime I still need to use afterrun oil, just because of the climate here in Holland....

Now I switched to "Roga" fuel, good stuff.....
Also heard very good things from "Gammalube"

If you leave ANY brand fuel in a motor it will rust mo matter WHAT fuel it is. Methanol gathers moisture out of the air and that is what causes rust.

BYRONS is the worst, not only the engine becomes rusty it also gums up the internals of the engine.

TORNADO is the best fuel currently available on the market.

UPS does accept flammable liquids and will ship it to approved countries, but I'm not sure how much it would cost:

Now all we have to do is find someone that is willing to go through that much trouble to ship it.

Izzy,

You need to get off the pipe. I hope this car I 'am building for you will run on that Tornado Fuel.

WORKS FUEL=#1=Ralph Burch Jr.

Maxy's Pro Racing Fuel is where its at. Doesn't burn the eyes, guaranteed increase in power overall. Best of all, motors never are never shorted on lubrication, which entails for long motor lifespan.

Who doesn't want longer engine life, power increase, and lower temperatures?

i know i do..

it even comes in a cute rosy color. if thats important to you!

Coming from you Mark, I may have to reconsider! lol
I think I'll have to give you a few tins so that you can see the difference in your engines after running tornado. The difference is in the way they process their fuel. They refine the nitro/methane/synthetic castor so it has little or no water content. No water=better engine protection, better combustion, strong consistant power band. Oh yeah... No ore rusted rear bearings...

PS:
Looking forward to having one of the best built cars in the world!!!
