i pay for my nitro and don't very much like paying $28.00 a gallon ( blue thunder it's the only fuel i use in all my trucks ) for fuel for my hobby when i pay $1.59 ( per gallon ) for gas for my car to get back and forth to work. WE ALL need to find a place where we all can get this fuel for a cheeper price per gallon. just think $28.00 per gallon thats a lot of money.is there a way or a place to get this cheeper we all need to know. if anyone out there can tell me . please post.

Well I am only 18 and I pay for my Nitro. 24 bucks a gallon. I pay a truck payment (450 a month). I pay Insurance (150 a month). and I pay dirtbike payment (150 a month). Plus regular unleaded fuel for the truck (2.17 a gallon). Then premium for my YZ 250f (1.37 a gallon). My job I have now hardley pays for this. But I do have a little extra cash for hopups and what not. I never though I would have so many payments when I hit 18. Oh yeah I am also going to be getting insurance. I wont have any money left by the time I am done with payments.

Haaaa, all you tax payers out there buy my fuel....... No really, Im in the military and y'all pay my paycheck, so in a round about way, you buy my fuel. Oh and I can beat 24 a gallon. I pay 19.98 plus sales tax for Wildcat Eliminator Plus. Its the same thing as HPI Racing fuel, but about half the price because Wildcat sells it under their own brand.

Mark_at81, I know what you are going through, and I know it seems very tough, but I would bet you are deffinitely on the right track! I am now 35. I bought my first home when I was 22. I did get a great deal on it, but, I lived there for about 9 years and fixed it up alot during that time. I sold it about 4 years ago and put about $55,000 CASH in my pocket! I then put about $45,000 of that down on the wonderful house I have now. By putting so much down, I was able to keep my monthly payments down low, also. I strongly believe that purchasing a house can be VERY rewarding if you are willing and able to commit to it for a while. Down the line, hopefully you will look back and be proud of your decision as I am.

My parents buy my things. I'm only 13 and I live in a very small town. My LHS/pawn shop sells O'Donnell fuel for $20. Traxxas fuel is about $18.

I pay for my own nitro - I buy airplane fuel for around $10 a gallon, and I run one car with a .12 CV-RX so I don't burn too much gas at all. Plus I don't have too much time to run it, and that helps reduce fuel costs [8D]
