"The big problem with the handed out fuel is that the fuel which is left over after a heat must be returned to the racing commission. All the left overs are put together in a tin and during the next heat this 'collection of fuel' is handed out again to the new group of drivers. When there for example two different production batches are mixed or when the fuel is not shaken well before handing out. This could mean that the right mixture can be corrupted and that the fuel is not exactly the mixture what it should be."

.....you're telling me these guys are supposed to keep a tune on a motor when fuel is dispensed, then returned, then dispensed and then ran again after it has already been heated in someone elses fuel tank during a heat? my guess is all of this transferring of the fuel changes the percentage of methanol (and or nitro) in a given quantity. does nitro evaporate at the same rate as the methanol does? have you noticed how on really warm (hot) day how fast fuel evaporates after it is spilled. all of this transfer could change the % of nitro in a given tank? so if the methanol evaporates quicker tan the nitro you end up with a bigger % of nitro in your tank. what % fuel did they run anyway?

Not from the tank but from the bottles the fuel was collected again. We believe there did go something wrong because the large retuning of an engine was needed and also the suddenly stalling of mine and also other engines...

Why did they reuse fuel that was returned in the competitors fuel bottle? Who's idea was it and did someone slap them for it?

If i had raced at this meet and someone handed me used fuel out of someone elses bottle i would have told them to shove it, and am surprised that noone did. If i have fuel left in my bottle after a club day it stays in the bottle and once home is put in a dry, cool and dark place, never ever ever would i put it back in the original bottle to contaminate my good unused fuel.
