Default Car gas vs. plane?

I have a ziggs 1/12th scale zero with a MVVS .15. My fuel is cool power 10% nitro. Is there any problem using O'Donnell racing fuel 30% for cars , in my plane? Thanks

If the fuel has 18% oil content I couldnt see it doing any harm. Personally I wouldn't use it.

the only time I've heard of using 30%.....was heli fuel.....as said above it has a high oil content...but it's very expensive...I don't think you'd notice that much of a difference

Do NOT use car fuel in airplane engines. Car fuel typically has about 8-12% oil content, while airplane fuel typically has 18-20% oil content.
