Model Fuel Facts:

  • Minimum engine wear is by use of synthetic oil.
  • The optimum ratio of castor oil is 2 - 4% of the total fuel.
  • Castor oil is better than synthetic for running in new engines
  • Good synthetic is better than castor after the engine is run in
  • Synthetic fuel exhaust residue is easier to clean off the model exterior than castor fuel residue
  • Two oil types blended together gives superior lubrication than a double amount of either on their own
  • the higher the nitro - the better the 2-oil advantage over single oil
  • Over time castor leaves a varnish on the outside of the engine, this is not a problem. But engines look better without it so if you use castor for cost reduction reasons, just clean the engine once a year with pariffin/kerosene and an old toothbrush.
  • Cheap synthetic is worse than castor, avoid it like the plague
  • European fuel needs less oil because euro synthetic oils are a different grade being ester based. With an ester synthetic oil less oil is needed. An engine maker manual will assume US grade oil, "just in case", and therefore recommend more than you need.
  • Big engines go better with no nitro, and less oil so use straight fuel in these, it costs less and the engine goes better
  • US fuel makers put nitro in by weight, and label it by weight. but nitro is heavy, and for example, a US fuel labelled as 16% nitro is only 12 1/2% nitro when labelled under the Euro system. ALL OUR FUEL HAS NITRO ADDED UNDER THE EUROPEAN SYSTEM so you get exactly what it says on the label
  • Some fuel makers use tiddly little containers which hold a US gallon = 3.75 litres, then charge full price for it, but we don't.
     

We use Imperial gallons = 4.55 litres, so you get 30% more fuel every time - a huge saving.
