Default The Best Fuel?

I'm looking for new fuel for my 1/10th and 1/8th on-road cars, both JP powered.

Tried Tornado, didn't like the rust I got on the crankshaft. Went to O'Donnell 30 percent. No major problems. Liked the fuel but the price is significantly higher than other brands. 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?

You should give Maxy's Fuel a try. I've noticed that it burns cleaner, more run time and best of all more punch. The internals do not show any type of rust and all of the internals are really shiny and this is after a hard race weekend.

I have never ever had any problems with Tornado, in fact, I find it to be the best fuel I have ever ran. The engine internals are spotless.

My second favourite would have to be O'Donnel. Gotta love the smell

Runnertime. For me the best of the best fuels available, expensive, but you will like it. Don't know where you are, but tried Tornado and Mecca (MeccaFuel?) and Cosmo.. Uhm... strange, the first are European made and the other is Japanese origin... where you are?

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.

I'm working in South Korea due to my job. Would love to try RunnerTime or Maxy's but neither are here.

I would tell you to use White lightning, but it will soon be no more. It is for me at the moment one of the best fuels I have tried to date. After WL is done I will be trying BK or Byron's not sure yet will make the choice in the off season,

Hands down, RunnerTime/JP is the best fuel I've tried so far.
