Default Which fuel do YOU use?

Still new to the gas scene. I've been using O'donnell 20%. A more experienced gas racer said that he doesn't like O'donnell because it leaves to much of a sticky residue... Which fuel do you think is the best and why?

I have been using PowerMaster 40% for years! Engines last for ever and they always run cool with lots of power.

I'm on my fourth gallon of Mugen 20%. Burns clean, great power, consistant and made by Byrons. I'm very happy with this fuel.

Switched over from Blue Thunder. I didnt like how the blue color varied gallon to gallon. Also didnt like how it stained the insides of the engines. BUT, on the positive side my engines lasted long using this fuel.

I also like Wildcat. I use the Premium 15%(16% 80/20 synthetic/castor oil) in my gas trucks with excellent results.

Tried Odonnell. Made good power but messy and it stunk.

BBNTC3, where can I get some info on the fuel VP RACING FUEL that you are speaking of.

Also TURBO9000, where can I get some info on the brand of fuel you are talking about(POWERMASTER 30%).

I am switching fuel and have a real good idea of what I will run in all my motors, but before I make the final decision I would like to know more about those two types.

Thanks for the help

I've been using Trinity Platinum 30% in my MT12 with great results. Reliable, easy to tune and gets good fuel economy with lots of power.
