Where to buy Sig fuel in Tx?

Any hobby shops within 100 miles of Dallas that sell Sig fuels?

I would think Wings and Wheels in Tyler would handle it. They are listed as a Sig distributor, on Sig's website.

Check out the Sig website . Give them a call and they will be able to tell you where the nearest dealer is located . Sig Fuel has always been a quality product , worth finding . Failing a local dealer , Sig will probably ship direct to you .

Been talking to Becky at Sig and have contacted a dozen hobby shops within 200 miles of Tyler Tx. So far no luck.

I spoke to Sig this afternoon about a large order of fuel shipped via truck. To ship 10 cases the cost is about $200.00.

Anyone in the Area interested in a group buy ? I would buy 3 cases for myself. Maybe talk a hobby dealer in Dallas, Houston, or Austin into ordering for us?

Contact Big Boy's Toys in Lafayette, La. They are a Sig distributor. If you can get them to obtain the fuel you need, I can pick it up when I am through there (I work in Louisiana, and live in Texas, and pass by Tyler twice a month) I could pick it up, and drop it by on my way home.

Let me know what you think of the idea, and if they can scarf the fuel for you.

Thanks Challenger_i.

I'll give them a ring in the morning.

However to really be attractive they would have to STOCK Sig fuel so that their order arrives by truck (freight) instead of UPS in order to save the Hazmat fees.

I'll send you a PM if I can work something out with them.

Thanks again.

Drop me an e-mail instead. Might be quicker to reach me, that way.

Happy to help a fellow muddler!

I have been using Ritches Brew from Ritches Hobbies in Houston for years with no problems. They can match the ingredients in the Sig fuel with no problems.
