    RE: Nitromethane find

    If you didnt get hit with hazmat shipping fees, I'd buy it from you. I'll need more nitro for next season, but If I order it from Torco I don't pay any shipping fees at all.


    Too bad everyone's paranoid about model engine fuel blowing up... It's really pretty stable for the most part (aside from the nitro changing color of course).

    I haven't gotten my feet wet with diesel yet; although my buddy has a 2.5cc PAW diesel that he ran for me once. The smell reminds me of hanging around the big airports. A very pungent smell, no doubt.

    UPS charges 25$ hazmat, plus ~$10 normal shipping rate for a 4-gallon case (1 or 4 gallons doesnt matter), which is why glow fuel is so expensive up here (roughly $32-$39 a gallon). Thats why I make my own. Torco sells nitro for about $56 a gallon with free shipping which is a steal, IMO. I have already made probably 6 gallons of fuel using 1/2 gallon of nitro.
