Should not be any problem. Just richen the needles and retune as a precaution when using a newer fuel.

From my limited experience with O'Donnel, Tornado fuels will give you a cooler engine.

Cool. Do you know if the JP fuel is a completely new fuel or is it taken from some other fuel manufacturer like what Mugen fuel and Byron fuels are doing?

I know before this that JP Racing recommends Tornado fuel a lot to be used with their engines.

From what I've heard is that JP himself and some other racers in my country made some report and give input to Tornado about their fuel while their answer is always quality are still the best, just keep on selling, more quantity on next order, etc and so on from long long time ago...

That's why JP look forward to produce his own fuel.

Default JP Fuel

I'm sure inside is still tornado fuel or he mixed it with o-donnell 50:50 for less smoke
