I use 16% Tornado fuel for general messing about and having fun and i think modelsport.co.uk sells this for an excellent price:

5L is 25.50 + 6 postage (UK) = 6.30/L

If you buy enough of it from modelsport the shippings free.

I havent treid Tornado yet as many belive its a racing fuel, and doesnt have much oil in it. especially the 25%.

I just ordered my self a gallon of 10% Dynamite Race Formula (Blue Thunder).

And 1 Quart gallon of 20% Dynamite Race Formula (Blue Thunder). Which i will use once my car is nice and warm and has had a few tanks of 10% run through it.

I guess you can use any kind of fuel which synthetic oil. But the ones that were recommended by schumacher were, model tecnics dynaglow, Dynamite Blue Thunder and Fantom which no one has been able to tell me where to get it. (Most guys have changed engines from the standard thunder tiger though.)

Most seem to use Tornado or O' Donnell.

I dont mind paying a few quid extra if it prolongs the life of my engine.
