Default Some questions before i really think about going deisel

How much will the difference in fuel price be? More or less? Also, Will i be able to make it myself and not worry about screwing my engine up?

Fuel price will be at most the same, probally less.

You can make it yourself, for the same price you can buy it, if you live here in the states.

Engines will last longer, have more power and NEVER dead stick.

How much more power would a Supertiger G-51 have? Would it be enough to make a plane go much faster or hover or anything?

I have a G-51. They are not a high horsepower engine.
The G-46 is just as fast and may wind a little tighter.

The G-51 is a torque motor. I believe I have a 13x8 on mine.
I don't remember the rpm, but it is almost the same when it was a glow engine turning a 12.5 x6
