Leaded fuel has no purpose in a 2 cycle engine as it will just cake up on the top of the piston. Lead was an additive to lube the valves and valve seats in a 4 cycle engine. Now they have been built to remove the need for lead as a lubricant. You do not need all that octane unless you have some out of this world compression and even then all you need is 91-93 unleaded.what do u guys think about using leaded fuel for the added lubrication? i can get it at $4 a gallon near my house. if i cut it with 89 octane i can bring it down to 96 octane leaded gas.
Have you purchased Nitro fuel lately? $25+per gal for 20% and I used to run 33% in my traxxas 3.3's @ $30 per gallon. I can run all season on coleman fuel for that price. BTW Sellinmg all of my nitro carsHave you seen the price of White Gas lately? Even the Walmart Ozark brand is near $6 gallon around me.
Still worth it for the no-smell, but wowsa.
