I remember reading through that article... Good stuff and thanks for the reference. The paragraph that lead me to add castor to buggy fuel for my small engines was:

A few years back, the modeling community was in a "synthetic oil frenzy," and the swing was toward all-synthetic fuels. Happily - at least in this writer's opinion, we've seen a very noticeable swing back toward the center, with the majority seeming to prefer a synthetic/castor blend. We think this makes sense, and many years experience proves it.

Since I ducked out of the hobby for these synthetic leaning years, I still want some castor in my fuel.

Bottom line; it keeps me happy and I've read up enough to feel safe about doing it. Same for the Thunder Tiger .39 in my helicopter... the manual actually says full castor or at least a blend.
