Help - One Fuel for Multiple Engines

       Remove this ad - become a site supporter!

I have the following helicopter engines; OS 37 SZ-H, OS 50 SX-H Hyper, YS 91 SR, and the following airplane engines; OS 46 FX, and Saito FA 62a.

I would like to carry one jug of fuel, so, which percentage of nitro and oil content would most suggest? I was thinking of Morgan Fuels Cool Power 20% - 20%, which may be difficult to find, as I see Cool Power 15% MV - 18% or 30% - 22% sold in the hobby stores! So, of the three blends; 15% MV - 18%, 20% - 20%, or 30% - 22%, which blend to use in all my engines?

Any advice and suggestions would be appreciated...

Re: Help - One Fuel for Multiple Engines

I have been using Morgan CP 20/20 fuel for several years in both 2 strokes and 4 strokes. It is the best fuel that I have used in almost 25 years of flying. But last year I discovered electrics and am now down to 2 glow engines a YS 1.10 & an Os 120 4 stroke. I have 5 gals of 20/20 fuel left and after that is gone I will be down to one fuel source - BATTERIES,
especially if the price of the fuel remains at $35.00.

But to answer your initial question CP 20/20 is very good fuel and can be used in MOST glow engines IMHO.
