odonnels seems to be widely available and popular. but you always hear different opinions.

your not supposed to go down in nitro content... but without Id use 20%. if its wrong... well you'll probably never know anyway. engines gonna die eventually, if it dies a few tanks sooner than it might have, you wont know the difference.

thanks.....

would it be bad for me to go up to 25% just in case he was using 25%... or should you not up the fuel either??

also what kind of a difference does the fuel have on your truck???

thanks again......

not sure if they make 25%... kinda seems like they may somewhere, but Ive never seen or read about it

you can go up ussually.

it gives you a bit more power at the expense of a little engine life(sometimes, theres so many factors to engine life). Ive heard both ways of making it easier or harder to tune... I think its supposed to be easier though; something about higher nitro lets you run richer without bogging down or something? that could be totally off.

I'm using a 25% Odonells blend - really good stuff. Any decent fuel around the %20 nitro mark will be fine, don't be that bothered about going down a few % in nitro.
