My racing friends and I have used 40% for over a year. We usually get about 8 gallons thru a motor before we need to replace the piston and sleeve. Most of your on-road modified motors are made to run 40%. Since PowerMaster fuel is made here in Texas I can get 40% for under $20.00. PowerMaster is made with 10% Caster/synthetic blend. (like 70% caster & 30% synthetic). It is very good fuel!!!!!

Hey YANMAN


What motors are you running??? Sounds like a Really good motor, are these Turbo's or just Standard plug motors. What size are these(.12's, .15's and or .21's) The only motor I've been able to go above 6 gallons is the RB's(using 40% O'Donnell)...

Thanks

Hey YANMAN


Is there a Part # for the Fuel??? The only PowerMaster fuel I've ever gotten in SoCal is Heli, and Plane fuel. That's the only fuel I'll use other than a special import of 0%(no nitro) for my Webra and NovaRossi Heli motors. Haven't found any 40% PM here other than Heli fuel. Or is this the fuel your using???

Hey bgotori:

I run a TQ mod MT-12. Mike Quellar (speedline hobbies) does the mods on all TQ motors. They are very strong Roar legal non-turbo .12s. I also run .15 open with a Paris Team Mod Nova TX15P engine. I live about 30 minutes from the PowerMaster plant so I can get just about any kind of fuel I want. They do produce fuel just for cars called formula-16 car fuel in 20%, 25%(off-road), 30%, & 40%. Have your local hobby shop order some for you. They also have a web site www.powermasterfuels.com.

I think BK fuels is one of the best around. Ralph Burch uses the stuff and I'm sure all y'all know who he is. BK is made locally in my area and a lot of people use it. The fuel is always FRESH. E-mail tprat75302Aaol.com and ask for Terry. Tell him Dien sent you.
