There are so many brands out there it's hard to say. They generally all say what type of oil they use on the label though. I, personally, will only use Fantom or O'donnel.

i switched from blue thunder to jacs .i jumped from 20 to 30 %
and my engine woke up big time .best of all the fuel is made locally within 60 miles of me and 90 % of the time is a fairly fresh blend.i say one is not better than the other but what ever makes you feel confident that your engine is running good for you is what you should use

TEAM L.T.Z ...

Byron fuel is a great fuel to use ,and it's just going to get better .Byron is releasing a new version of there car "RACE" FUEL ,it's going to be call RACE GEN2 and they say it's better than there current fuel.
Also ther adding there PRO fuel to the line up with 9% oil.This has been available before but dealer restricted to who they sold it too.
The new fuel will have some kind of new LUBE package .
Look for it to hit stores late December and ad's in magazine's.

I've tried O'Donnell, Trinity, and Blue Thunder. I haven't really noticed a difference between them, but thought I'd ask which fuel on the market is the best.
I like O'Donnell

last i heard was that Ralph is running Werks racing fuel as well as the whole xray team. Furthermore, Werks racing fuel TQed the 1/8th scale nationals (Chris Tosolini) and finished in 1st place ( Joel Johnson). On top of that, 1/2 the field in the U.S. 1/8th scale A main nationals, inlcuding myself, were running Werks fuel. If that doesnt answer what is the best fuel than i dont know what does!!!!

O donnell here.

.......
I heard from my friends, JP fuel is the best, and I think, it could be, considering the price of it.
