Hey here's a question to throw out at you all. I run Byron's 20% now and have been thinking of going to 30%. I run a JP Racing Modded Mugen x12 motor and a novarossi #6 non turbo plug. What will I need to add/change if I was to switch to running Werks 30%? I know 30% gives more power but I've also heard that 30% blended fuel will wear out a piston & sleeve faster than just running 20% would. Is this true?

It depends what brand engine your running picco are differnet sizes than nova rossi.. I think this is what your asking...if not than just add a shim..this will not damage motor if anything it will protect it from detonated and blowing plugs....hope this helps.

Ok ....thanks Robert. Is all I neaded to know.
I'm hoping to run the fuel soon.

Just a side point. Dealers who stock WERKS fuel near Davenport, Iowa. Anybody? Or will I have to pay for shipping?

Thanks

Robert M. let me try out this fuel one day and I must say that I was impressed. The engine does run a bit cooler compared to other brands which is a good thing. One thing though, the cost of $35 per gallon is a bit steep, but I guess u gotta pay for good things.

Here's the deal:

Management at Warricks was not sure about buying a large amount of fuel initially, concerned that it would not sell. Fuel is VERY expensive to ship from CA. to FL.-you have to send it by freight on a pallet (around $3 to $5 a gallon). So we had to start out small-2 cases of %30. This small amount meant having to ship it by UPS, which adds about $9 to the cost of each gallon. If the seven gallons that I have left sell relatively well , then we should hopefully be able to order a larger amount, bringing the price down considerably.
By the way, thank you Jason B. for being our first Werks R.B.F. customer.
