Default Tornado Fuel


Can anyone tell me the oil percentage in Tornado 16% nitro fuel ? I've just bought a gallon and there is no information on the can.

I've got an OS 12CV-R to run in and I think OS recommend 18% oil.

I'v been using Byron Race 1600 up to now in my Novarossi C12 without any problems but it's only 12% oil and I read somewhere that Byron measure by weight and not volume,which means there is less than 12% oil in the fuel.

The "standard" 16% Tornado has 9% oil, For Running in I suggest Tornado 5% plane (15% oil and cheaper) or just 16/10% CAR and than the OIL+ FORMULA.
