Default Fuel/Nitro Mixing

Ok, sorry for the dumb and maybe obvious question, but if I mix 15% nitro fuel with 0% nitro fuel, I should get 7.5% correct? Is it not that obvious or am I assuming something, missing something.

I ask therefore I am....sorry couldn't resist. Anyway, I have s ST G-90 and apperantly it would run better on 5% nitro and since I have 4 gallons of Riches Brew Pylon 15%, I thought I'd get some 0% (heck do they even make 0%??) and mix the two.

Ok, enough Bob Blah Blah...thanks.

Yes, you can mix fuel the way you describe. I cannot find 0% fuel at any local hobby shop, but sometimes they have 5%.

you have to be carefull though. Make sure that both the oil content and TYPE are the same. Some synth oils don't mix well with others.
