Anyone have any 0% fuel I can buy?
I didn't realize how hard it would be to find castor oil for the methanol. I got several gallons of methanol from the race track, but now I can only order the high end oil online. Also the only castor oil I can find locally is at walgreens for $5 per 4 oz. That is way expensive.
So if anyone has any I could buy to get me through the weekend, until my oil arrives next week I would appreciate it.
Call my cell please. 920- four, seven, zero, 41 eight seven.

I remember seeing castor oil at Walmart in the pharmacy section. Make sure it is without sugar added. It may not be degummed as well as the SIG castor and can varnish up faster on a hot day. I think it is a wash mixing your own fuel. Does the race track have nitro methanol there?

Thanks everyone, I bought Craig's remaining supply.
also Galaxy does have Klotz. Only the 20% castor though, and the full synthetic. I bought the last 20% castor quart he had. Galaxy did not have pure castor, but since he stocks Klotz, they make a pure castor, FYI. I have enough castor to break it in, and enough 20% castor, to run for awhile. Then I can have Wade order some Klotz pure castor for when my current stock runs out.
Should have called Galaxy. Didn't think they would stock Klotz in a million years.

FYI Eric, If you're running this in you're Moki 2.1, Byron's Originals used to market an FAI "SuperTigre blend" that was 60/40 Castor/Synthetic blend (total 16% oil) that was recommended for Mokis if they were already broken-in. I remember running some through mine as a trial once with good results (22X8 prop).
If memory serves me correct (BIG IF) Soap grade Castor is de-gummed well enough to use for lube. This link is a source.
16 Gal castor is $336 (using 10oz castor per gal of mixed fuel= 204 gal treated @ $1.65 per gal + cost of syn oil.). Good group rate maybe
Also, I used to buy methanol at the Speed shop in Freedom for about $3.00/ gal. Not sure if it's still available.
BTW, I've got about a quart & half of Sig Castor sitting on my shelf you can have.
