Some very good fuels would be...RB concept, Maxy's, Odonell, Blue Thunder race formula. Byron fuel has too much of an oil content and takes away from performance. They need to stick with fuel for airplanes in my opinion. Blue Thunder is very good, but leaves blue parts in the engine. This however does not effect parts wear or any negative long term effect. I'm really have no clue on what is available in Korea or wherever you are all located. Good luck guys!

I'm going to say Werks Racing is the best fuel I've tried so far from all the mass distributed fuels in the United States and even better than Tornado which I used a 5L can of.

Your motor runs much cooler than the "popular" brands which means you can lean the engine for more power and runtime. Engine life isn't different than with other fuels. It's wierd but I noticed that if the fuel is left exposed to the air it will turn from clear to apple cider brown very quickly. Whatever causes that is probably what makes the fuel so good.

It's called oxidation that means the fuel is no good

Tried Cosmo, but it was impossible to get a consistent tune with it. Now with Mecca 25 (same as JP I've been told) and it is like O'Donnell in terms of consistency, low temps, etc but for others it seems to be killing engine bearings pretty quick. Any other fuel suggestions?
The best you can do is using JP-Fuel, its also the best for guarantee issues. If you can not get JP-Fuel try Runnertime (its the same )

Lol Mark, 50% nitro ;-) By the way let me publicly thank you and Ralph for using our 30% Werks "Race Blend" fuel at the nats. Your guy's results there were awesome, taking both TQ and the win. It was also great having Joel Johnson come in 3rd using our fuel also! Thank you again!

Racing4Evo, thank you for your comments what you noticed when running the fuel. We spent nearly 2 years developing the product and testing virtually every combination of lubricants that we could find before we released it. It's been a lot of work but I honestly think that at this time we have one if not the best fuels available on the market here in the US and our race results are showing it. TQ, 1st and 3rd 1/8th On-Road National, 1st Great Lakes Challenge and let's not even get into off-road where a lot of the top drivers are using our fuel.

Corex, I'm sorry but you are completely incorrect, it's not oxidation. The anti-oxidant that we use is photo-reactive. Meaning it darkens when exposed to UV light just like film, that is it. It does not change the characteristics of the fuel at all. Is it strange to see this, yes I guess it is. But it is the best anti-oxidant that we could find so we decided to go with it. I guess we could have hid this fact by putting in some type of dye like other brands but if it does not add to performance, we do not put it in our product.

wallyedmonds, I'm just curious what you base this statement on? All fuels are based on the same basic ingredients, nitro-methane, methanol and lubricants. How can one go bad faster than another?? If anything our fuel should last longer as we add another step to the bottling process. That is induction sealing each bottle. So on the top of each bottle below the cap there is a vacuum sealed air tight foil seal. Meaning that it is impossible for the fuel to absorb moisture through the cap when sitting in the shop or when transported. So with our fuel when you open the bottle it is actually as fresh as the day it was bottled. This is also I belive something that only we do!
