Heli fuels (in general) have a high oil content 18 to 20%....that's way too much oil for a car engine....also...the oil is usually all synthetic which gives a very high burn off flash point but does not lubricate as well as the specially blended synth/castor oil blends found in car fuels. Heli fuel prob wont hurt an engine but your performance will be lower and you MAY have pre-mature wear out of your car engine....most heli engines are ringed and have lower compression ratios than cars. Different tolerances and heat= different oil %
and type.
To finish first....first ya gotta finish!
