Default fuel

Where do you buy fuel. DDD quoted a price of $41.85 for 2 quarts $12.95/qt and $15.95 shipping. I thought that was kind of high; or is that the going price.

Tower hobbies Davis diesel fuel yes shipping 9.99 whether you buy one qt or two
Yes you can make your own, only ether easy to get is the John Deere starting fluid, by the time you buy syn lube, castor, ignition improver you might save a dollar a qt not really worth the hassle, and just open the can fuel and go. John deere fluid at least $5 a can you need 2 add the rest of the stuff and you have spent at least
$12.00 and you should keep in in a good metal can NOT PLASTIC Glass?? drop it it breaks martin

I noticed that Tower Hobbies has "Order Pending" as the stock status for the DDD fuel quarts. I guess his fuel is quite popular since whenever I have looked before it was always in stock.
