It's actually 8% by the website. 11% is what I would call a breakin and club racing fuel. Others are 9% are race fuels. I think it is fine as is. I guess a little caster couldn't hurt though.

Go to a pharmacy or grocery store and buy a container or two of Castor Oil. It's sold as a Laxative. It MUCH MUCH purer and consistent than the Castor Oil fuel manufacturers use, anyhow.

IF you are going to add caster oil. I believe it's about 2oz per gallon.

In theory, 1.28oz oil added to a gallon will yeild an increase of 1% of oil. However fuel gallons are never filled exactly to 1 gallon... sometimes they are under, sometimes they are over.
