d_orgera is right about the nitro content , good luck with the engine , also the super tiger engine likes lots of back pressure , you will be surprized on how small the hole is on the exhaust pipe for such a large engine

No, it does not take the stock nitro fuel. I have some experience with the big tigers, cut oil and nitro and they run great.
I am running a tiger 3000 on 15% oil, and straight meth, no nitro, and it runs like a clock. Needles are touchy until you get them set, then they tick over like a clock. Try mixing your own blend by volume, 850ml Methanol, 150 ml oil ( I use the coolpower castor syn blend). This gives you 15% oil by volume, and works well, and because you are putting more fuel into it, it goes farther than 20% plus nitro. Glow plugs make a difference as well, I find the OSf type work well. Try it out.
