Not sure why you would ask a question like that - particularly phrased that way.
All its going to do is stir up a hornets nest and cause the usual forum sh-t fight.
Everyone has their favourites, so best left at that I think ??

Bones Brew, awesome fuel. Best quality, and you can get break in fuel as well.

Great break in fuel... High oil content. Only run a quart of it though on the bench. Never on the track.

For that, Ill stick with the tried and true Byrons Gen 2 30/11. Back up is the Sidewinder Red.....

No need to mess around with different fuels when you have something that works Just sayin....
