Place to get fuel


I need a little help trying to find a website to get fuel for my new old plane. I need some 0% Nitro 20% Castor fuel. I am having a hard drive trying to google a place to get that type of fuel. I have found a lot of places that have 5% and 10% Nitro but no place I have found that has 0%.

Look for some drag racing locally or find a place that sells VP racing fuel.

https://vpracingfuels.com/product/m1/?c=217&

Then buy a gallon of Klotz Benol.

https://www.amazon.com/Klotz-Racing-...008YELCWY?th=1

Take out 1 gallon of methanol from the 5 gallon pail. Pour in 1 gallon of Benol. Now you have methanol fuel with zero nitro and 20 percent castor oil.

Give Stanley a call at S&W fuels he will mix up any special blend no extra charge. I see your looking for all castor I have been using his old time blend which is 22% oil half castor half synthetic available in any nitro 0% on up . Here is the web address http://www.s-whobby.com/index.html good luck. Yogi

Be aware as I just discovered when ordering some fuel from Sig Mfg, that gallon containers of fuel get slapped a hazmat fee by UPS that Jack’s the price up. I ended up buying four 1 qt bottles and avoiding the fee, but of course the unit price is sought higher.

When you search on the web, search "racing fuel ashland KY" and see what you get. You should be able to find somebody selling methanol to the local gear heads. You can get castor oil from https://www.bulkapothecary.com/?gcli...SAAEgIwCPD_BwE

This week I went to an auction where a soap making business was being sold off. There were two gallons of castor oil, but somebody got them for (believe it or not) making soap! It went for $7 a gallon while I wasn't looking. Oh well, maybe I'll do better next time a soap company gets liquidated.

Yeah that 0%(FAI) nitro fuel is hard to come by these days.

These guys above gave good info, and a go-kart or racing shop should have what you're looking for. I've mixed my own for quite a while when I was running Moki engines, and have sold those off for a few reasons. I remember it being called "Alky", short for alcohol I'm sure.

I used Blendzal mixed to 17%-18% content if memory serves me... but yeah follow their lead above and you should be able to make something work.
