Default RE: Ritch's Brew Bad Experience

You don't have to have less oil in your fuel to make more power. The majority of the fuel is methanol so a blend of say 5% nitro, 18% oil and 77% methanol would make less power than a blend of 30% nitro, 18% oil and 52% methanol. Both have the same amount of oil but the 30% nitro blend would make a lot more power. Since the higher nitro would make it necessary to run richer on the needle the oil content could be cut back and the engine would still be getting the same amount of oil per revolution.
