Hey Flying Freak,

I have a suggestion for you. Have you considered using different color fuel lines. That way you can match the fuel lines on your engines and your fuel container depending on what type of fuel it uses? Fuel dots like the ones MinnFlyer told you about require you to pull the fuel line part way out of the cowl so you will be easily be able to tell what color it is. I have seen fuel line in as many as 6 different colors and thats not counting fuel lines for gasoline.

Thats just my two cents worth.

Fly safe and have fun!!

Flying freak,

Mike + Dave = Problem solved

Both presented a more logical answer than I had, and put em both together and you can't miss.

Hey Flying Ereak,

I have another thought on this subject for you to consider. The only motor you listed in your original post that will not run on normal aircraft fuel with 15 to 18% nitro and 18% to 20% oil whether it be from Omega, Byrons, Powermaster or whomever is the Moki. It will not run worth a heap on fuel that has more than 5% nitro. The performance difference on running your Saito engines on 15% or 20% nitro is only marginal. You may want to experiment until you find a suitable general fuel for all of your motors (except the Moki) and just use it. Don't be overly concerned with using a fuel with a little extra oil content. It will only protect your engine, but may be a little more messy to clean up.

Fly safe and have fun!!
David
