Default Fuel mix calculator

I would imagine many get frustrated trying to figure out the percentage of oil, nitro and methanol to mix glow fuels.

Similarly gor petrol/gas fuel how much oil at a given ratio.

I was bored at work yesterday so did a simple little calculator in excel. I can email if anyone is insterested.

the maths are very simple, it is just division and some basic subtraction. Might save people from pulling out a calcultor and pulling their hair out.

It only does metric, sorry no ounces, cups, gallons et al.

As long as all the units are in ml, you should also be able to use it for fl oz. Just pretend the ml actually say fl oz and the percentages should still all come out correct. I did not get a good look at the calculator but It looks like all the units are the same, correct? I did a similar calculator but mine is all in oz. and I have a few different calculators that will take an initial fuel and you can add components to it and see what you get in the end or actually tell it what you want in the end and get the correct ingredients to add to existing fuel to get the right ratios.

I eventually added ml unit conversion on to mine because when making small quantities of small percentages, an oz. is just a little too course to accurately measure.

Thanks for sharing.

Default Concentration-Volume Calculator

Hi, I recently ran into the need to calculate fuel mixes. I can e-mail an Excel file in which you can enter the Quantity, % Nitro, and % Oil of the fuels (Components) you may have on hand and play with those numbers (the quantities of each) until the result you want is displayed on the right side as "Mixture".

There are two (2) sheets. The second sheet, labeled "COMPLEX" (not shown), goes even further and allows you to mix up to thirteen "component" fuels to get a final result. The results, however, are "sub-totaled" along the right side and that Mixture is automatically utilized as one of the components in the next iteration.

I usually only use the sheet labeled "SIMPLE".

As long as the units of measure you're using (i.e., cups, ounces, gallons, milliliters, etc.) are the same, then the resultant ratio is along the bottom and what you end up with is along the right side.

Hope someone can use this.
