I have been running the Gen 2 fuel from Byrons for a few months now and I can say you will like it a lot. No engine failure at all and makes tons of power and great miledge.

I run Maxy's fuel and have never had any issues. I always make plenty of power, more than enough run time and the motor last a long time. What else could anyone ask for. Maxy all the way. I use 30%

I've always loved Whitelightning but since talks of it being discontinued, I switched to Maxx's and the engines love it.

However if you are not a good engine tuner, I would caution you on the use of high end fuel. I learned my lesson once.

There really is no "best" fuel. It is mainly a bunch of equivalent blended fuels and each racer picks the one that he or she feels comfortable with running. I do know that there is one fuel not to use in your nitro engine: Blue Thunder (aka Blue Blunder). But with the others, you usually can't go wrong with whatever choice you make.

Default The Fuel Of Choice?

The best fuel that I have come across, and I’ve tried just about all the ones available in Europe is the Runner Time Fuel. Runner Time is such a good fuel that I even when to the extent of importing it my self, which is costly over seas but for the performance and reliability of the blend it was worth it as it outweighs this massively. Runner Time is the serious racers choice to those in the know. This is as a mass majority of team drivers (Europe especially) for all the major engine and car manufactures use it even if they say there running something else. E.g. Runner Time in a Tornado can?? This may because of sponsorship from other manufactures. Not good I know but it’s what happens!!! So I highly recommend Runner Time especially if its available in your area.

Regards

Speedy!

I really really doubt that Losi and Tornado fuel are the same.
