Default RE: Fuel

you don't have enough detail, it's completely dependent on the application of the engine. in all my heli's and most of my sport planes i use 100% synthetic but in my prop jets and delta wings that are built to haul butt and are turning up 20 thousand Plus RPM i use a 20% castor/80% synthetic blend. at those RPM a bubble in the fuel line can cause a lean enough run to gald a piston so the castor is a necessity.

That's like asking "what's the best airplane?" without any further detail as to what for.

The best fuel to run is the best one for the application. No universal answer.

If you have fuel questions for a particular application put it here or in the glow engines forum in detail, you'll get good answers. BTW it's castor, casters are the little wheels under an office chair.
