Default Torco Fuels' 100% nitro - anyone have problems?

Last year I ordered a gallon of 80/20 nitro/methanol from FHS Oils and had good luck with it. This year I bought a gallon of pure nitro from Torco through EBay. Anyone use it? Any performance changes using it versus using another vendor's nitro? The Torco product was almost $15 cheaper and had free shipping. The label reads "99.9% pure"

Torco is providing nitro for non NHRA events.  Can't remember which.  Should be good fuel.

I wasnt too worried about it.. I was just fishing to see if anyone else is using it. The stuff I got from FHS was diluted which made the math a little more complicated but it ran really well. When it finally gets warm enough, I have to make up a couple quarts of break-in fuel for a couple new engines I have that I'll test the stuff out on.

i bought a lot of straight nitro from Torco. no trouble. i was watching NHRA drag racing today one car had a Torco sticker on it. i dont recommend mixing your own nitro, ill just leave it at that.

Dude... This thread was started on February 16th and you reply now? Much less with the "don't mix your own" line... You need a new hobby, and I'll just leave it at that.
