You are incorrect, as meronr said, it is $25.00 to $35.00 for a 2.5 liter can, which is way less than a US gallon.

You got that right SRAD. if you think about it, 1 US gallon is 3.7843 liters, which if you calculate it at $27.00 per 2.5 liter, then it is $40.50 per US gallon.

2.5liter can is .66 gallon, so just a little over a half a gallon so if you were to buy two cans which would be 5liters or 1.32gallons would be paying anywhere from $50-70 for more than a gallon because Tornado doesn't come in gallon cans..On another note if you were to buy the big can of Tornado (5liters) as i did some times last year it ran you anywhere from $50-65 a can so a little savings but not much...

I tell some guys the same thing but one i run the fuel it is crisp burn, engine inside very clean lot of our racers use this fuel but as all are saying it is a bit costly. It is not a not regular racers fuel if you race it is not bad, because the amount of time spent on track and time working on car between not allow you to burn a lot of fuel. if price is better more would buy for sure. but i really believe the fuel is good my engine was really at best performance with it and it was visible. no needle changes just switch fuel and bam car was faster on clock.

Gary,

RC1 Racing is still unchanged. You can still get it in Canada from Greg - RC1 Racing.

I'm just kinda curious and am wondering; since I have honestly never heard of this fuel before; How might some say it compares to some of the other fuels out there currently such as byron's, maxy, trinity and the like just to name a few? On a sidenote if it really is 40 bux a gallon!!! thats probably something my wallet wont be able to handle lol. I mean how will they sustain the business by pricing it at $40.00 a gal when quite a few if not most of the others out there are anywhere from approx. $25 to 35/gal depedning on the brand and what retailer u may goto? Just kinda wondering about it thats all.

Hello Matts6887,

Tornado Fuel has been in business for the past 20 years. We are well known in the European and Asian market. We are just coming into the American market. We have a few World title under our belts and the newest one is the 2007 in Argentina.
As for the pricing question, we understand the pricing is a little high, and it all because the fuel are coming from Europe.
As for the difference of the fuel comparing to the others, I can only suggest you to try it. A lot of people ask us the same question, but once they tried the fuel, they understand why.
If you have a chance to pick up the fuel. Just try it. You will like it.
And if you have any more questions about the fuel, let us know.

Thanks

I personally really like the fuel and wish I could run it all of the time. My wallet can't handle it.

Its easy to win world championships when you're the only fuel allowed.

You are very correct, the only fuel during the 2007 1/8 scale Worlds in Argentina, is Tornado, then of course no other brand fuel can compete, therefore it should'nt be claimed that it "won" the world championship, but of course it won, only there is no other brand competing

You can only win if you compete, and when only one brand is allowed, there's no competition. Therefore Torando didnt win anything.
