Hi Juan , Welcome to RCU .

An .049 usually likes fuel with a good amount of nitro (at least 10 or 15%, up to perhaps 20%) and the fuel doesn't specifically need to be "Control Line Fuel" , any good quality "Glow engine fuel" will do fine . A quick internet search turned up a gallon of glow fuel on Amazon for $32 with free shipping ....

I buy whatever hobby fuel I can find and then add whatever is required to get to the fuel I need. For my 1/2a fuel I usually try to find RC car fuel with about 20 - 25% nitro, then add a little oil and/or alcohol to bring it up to my std 1/2a blend, (20% nitro, 20% oil and 60% alcohol).

Of course, the easiest solution is to order some fuel online.

I use 15% nitro; 20% oil; some of the oil being castor helps
