Car fuel in Aircraft Engine?
Remove this ad - become a site supporter!
I bought out a guy who had his hands in RC cars and RC planes. He had 2 gallons of 45% fuel for cars left over. I am curious what I need to do to this fuel to use it in my planes. The way I see it, I will need to cut it with 5% air fuel at a ratio of 70/30 (5% air/45% car). This would give me a 15% nitro mix. As far as oil goes, if the car stuff is 11%, and the air is 18%, this mix ratio would compute to roughly 15.5% oil content. So if I add 2.6 oz oil, it should bring the oil up to 18% again. Anyone see an issue with this?
Then again, if it is only a 30% useage of the 45, is it worth the risk? Hmmm. Fuel is only 16 bucks a gallon. An engine??? Hmmm. I may have just answered my own question.
