Question GAS Boats

I was offered a rc gas boat for a good price but do I have to buy a special fuel or can I use standard gas from a gas station? Also can anyone guide me to place that sells rc vehicles besides Ebay not much luck there for rc boats. Thank You

Tower hobbies sells the REO 51z gas deep V it is the cheepest gas boat I know of.It is big 51 inches long and realy handles grate. It has a Zehona gas engine that burns regular gas with 2 cycle oil added and it is fas but not to fast for beginers. If you get one I would advise you take everything out of the hull and refiberglass the stringers as they have had problems with them braking.Everything comes out easy and goes back easy and it dusent cost much to do it and that way you wont have to worry about that happening..It is a grate boat and they may have fixed the problem...I am hung up on ZIPPKITS the make gas kit boats and race them and they sell everything you will need to build a fine gas boat including the motor and all the hardwair and you con build it at your own pace...check them out on the net..I am building one and its all laser cut and fun to build......Bob
