Anyone use Gammalube fuel? I'm thinking to try one but just want to see how it performs before i buy one.

Gammalube has high castor oil which is good for rust protection and compression. After 8 gallon gammalube + 2 Byron my engine(NoVa NS12) still good idle and power. Byron is also good fuel.

Yep. Always good to run the best. You want to try Runner Time. Pretty expensive (€50+ per gallon) but you will notice the power difference.

Gammalube Fuel... Yes... at last year's 1/8th Championship in Cincinatti. Runner Time Fuel too but don't remember seeing O'Donnell Fuel.. I might be wrong. You might be able to spot some of them in the pictures. Quite good.

Kmax, I have used Bryon's fuel since it 1st came out, and never had an engine failure. (over 15 years)

I use the 30%.
I've tried other brands, but so far Byron's has been the best for me.

After 3 years of running Wildcat and Trinity MH(made by wildcat).I decided to try something new.....I was having constant tuning problems with Nova based engines on it..

I settled on Sidewinder World Championship 30% fuel......(it has a thinner oil,,NOT less,just thinner) that allows for great throttle transition........

this fuel just plain rocks.......I mean,power out the butt......really easy to tune(and idles great!!!)......runs cool......and I haven't seen a spec of rust on the inside of the motors.....

BTW,because of the luck I had with this fuel,I decide to try RB engines again........
want some power?....run the v12 on Sidewinder.,.......OOOFAAAA!!!!!!
gonna try the v 15 next......

I'm just finishing my 3rd gallon of Wildcat Eliminator, and I can't wait to finish it. My friend and I both have used it and we have noticed we both run really hot with it. And yes, we we both running quite rich.

Can anyone name some fuels that are known to have great power, are nice to engines and run cool??
