Lets do the math again. If I take 4L of 20% with 18% castor, I would add .72L of oil and 3.28L of Methanol. Voila, I now have 8L of 10% with 18% oil.

Whacker, how do the engines run with no Nitro; I read more about it in RC Universe and some people say the engines may not idle well/low enough without the nitro. Is there anything special you need to do with the engines or do you just fiddle with the low end until you get a good idle.

Thanks again,

I have a spreadsheet I made up just for this from the days when used to make my "Arabian Special Blend" I can send it to you if you want.

Re: Need some help with homebrew fuel?

Here's a fuel mixing chart that I use regularly.....Because it's so hard to find nitromethane in Canada I buy 30% helifuel and cut it to my liking.....I use this chart to do it.
I have a good quantity of Klotz Super Techniplate (KL100) for sale at $6.00 / quart (less than half-price). This is 100% synthetic.
