Default Aussie Diesel Fuel Available Again!!

I was very happy to see ready made diesel fuel has reappeared at my LHS @ $24.95/litre. Made in Victoria by Ozzie Traders. Seems to be 1/3 of each ingredient ( blend not shown on label ) and no additive. Suits me for sport flying.........John

That's good news for PAW and Mills fanciers.

Maybe if they get enough interest they could compliment this PB brew with a BB brew of say 22% Castor, 43% kero, 2% DII and 33% ether. A brew that would be good for all round sports use for Irvines and Diesel conversions.

Here's hoping.

Very glad to hear it John. I've been mixing my own lately but I'm running out of ether.

I spoke to our LHS proprietor who said he had to buy it by the crate and it just wasn't worthwhile with the smallish demand in our region. I'm assuming your LHS is Kelletts which is pretty big. The Muswellbrook meet is on the weekend of 20th May. I usually drop in to Kelletts on the way so I hope you haven't bought it all by then

Hi John, give Kelletts a ring or send an email, I'm sure something could be arranged....John

This is clearly good news - I live in Grafton (NSW North Coast) & have 4 diesels that I would simply love to run to hear the sound & smell the smell. Now if anyone from Sydney is travelling north thru Grafton over Easter or at anytime for that matter, please drop me a line.............. .

My modelling mate Peter is also looking forward to running his diesels, so here in Grafton we have 2 potential users.
