It is not the fuel is bad.
Brand "X" that is reported works very well in Africa, sometimes can not fit in to let say Asia Market (if they dont change the blend).
DIfferent climate, temperature and humidity number is playing biggest part of it.

oic...ok, we have o'donnell here but on the other hand,seems no one using it...especially the new one, in the black tin. the smell is totally aweful compares to others and some bad comments from friends.
i've tried the old one though..with the white plastic container. in fact i used the 25% o'donnell to get to my 1st ever A-main(sorry, can't help it )
i will try anything if it makes my engine last and still performing. thanks for the advice.

ok...thats logic too. hmm...it seems that i have to try a lot of fuel brand to find the good one. i hope the tornado and o'donnell are good choices.
thanks all.

yes the inside of that engine does look familiar,I have one just like it also using torndao 16%, I was under the impression that tornado was a top quality fuel. Is this orange coating a feature of tornado or all fuels? I don't suppose its a good thing anyway. A good thing would be to open the engine and see a nice clean crisp piston looking back at you.....

NOt sure of the science and only have one other availabe fuel to me which is model technicas, which i though was the lesser of too, however it didnt cause this orange stuff in the engine and alwalys ran well.

wonder why i changed....wonder what to do next?


interesting subject -

However as also stated the engine is running fine.

I had a carlsen works engine that looked the same, turns out that tornado fuel has a nasty habbit of attracting moisture when the engine has not been run for a couple of days, my crank and bearings where solid with rust.........

Best thing to do is completely strip the engine including bearings and check that everything is o.k, I would replace the bearings if my engine looked like that inside.....

cheers.....rage

I have no pictures but somebody is testing the pipe and seems to work really good.
I found on the austrian novamax distributor the code for this product:
MX00202 NovaMax .12 Inline exhaust + conical header

www.serpent.at is the web site of this dealer

SER-2175 Polished Conical Inline Adaptor M12

Newly available from NovaMega is this polished manifold. Due to its conical shape, getting larger from the engine to the pipe, the engines performance is significantly improved in the middle range. A big step forward in engine performance and pipe technology.

Suitable for all .12 engines when used with an inline main pipe.

thanks for the advice...but i will not strip out my bearing yet...as the engine is doing great...i think its just the fuel deposit. i just clean it as goldfinger adviced. thanks anyway.
