Default Moki 210 and CoolPower 5%?

In the past I've always used omega 5% since it has a blend of castor and syn. My LHS is out of omega and I grabbed some 5% cool power which has all synthetic. Based on what I've read the moki should run fine, but should I add a little castor to be safe?

Yes. Especially when running Moki, MVVS or MDS engines.

I would tend to agree and add a little castor oil to it too.
I normally run Omega 5% myself in most of my engines.
But I have gone and used Omega 10% or even 15% when I had to because the LHS had run out of the 5%.
But with your big Moki, I don't know what the compression ratio is, so it may not like higher nitro percentage fuels though.

I add a couple of ounces of castor to Omega for all engines.

thanks. I'll add a couple ounces of castor. I tried running 10% omega last summer and it didn't like it much.

yep, 5% nitro is max. Cruel power fuel has how much oil? The 210 needs 18% total.

17% according to Morgan website. 3 ounces of caster should bring it to just under 20%.
