Pee on it and walk away.

Re: Making your own Glow fuel

simple thing is an engine that runs 0 nitro mix about 84% methanol to 16% oil comercial fuels are in the 16 - 18 percent range. I mixed for a while and found 20% oil too much using synthetic turbine. had to keep adding meth till i got it where i liked smoke wise and where the engine ran right what the final mix was dont know

Re: Making your own Glow fuel

This is my homemade fuel thread.
I now have 2 engines running on this fuel, the GMS 47 and a K&B 40.
Both engines run very well.
Like the thread says, I had the head on the GMS machined to raise the compression.
The K&B had a thick washer under the head so I took it out and the engine would barely run on the fuel. Reinstalled the washer and it runs great.
