Trust the fuel experts that have put years into designing and testing their fuel. I personally like Pit Stop, but it's a little hard to find. Making your own fuel is very outdated, there are so many different companies making fuel out there that definately know a lot more than any of us on this board.

Default Nothing to it

Get the methanol then some nitro and then. mmmmmm now where to find some good oil. I used to do it for my large 35cc airplane motor but that thing sucked down the fuel. I could go thru a gallon a day. It also did not need nitro so it was cheap to mix. Its not that hard but you have to make large quantities to make it pay off.

i would go ahead and just keep buying it.. it would be alot easier and not so much as a headache..plus you probably wouldnt have near as many motor problems as you would making it yourself..
