Default Adequate fuel mix for OS 0.21 engines

Is this fuel mix appropiate for a OS 0.21 VG and V-Spec engines? []

Complete volume= 1 gallon=3785 ml

Oil Klotz KL-100= 473 ml=473/3785=12.5% oil

Klotz Nitro KL-600= 236 ml = 236/3785=6.2% nitro

Methanol = 3785-(473+236)= 3076 ml/3785= 81.3% Methanol

I am trying to optimize the amounts of the components since the Klotz products are expensive.[:@] Methanol was the least expensive at $9.00/gallon.

The price for the KL-100 was around $13.00/32 FLOZ and the KL-600 about $16.00/16 FLOZ

If I can use half of the Klotz products and the Meth gallon less the volumes of the oil and Nitro the price per gallon will be as follows:

$9.00 Meth+$6.50 KL-100+$8.00 KL-600 = $23.50. An aftermarket RC gas gallon costs around $35.00 so I will be saving $11.50/gallon.

Thanks for the help!!!!!!!

you should be considering a mix of 18 to 20 % oil not 12.5% these engines will last alot longer with more oil content,
for one litre of mixed fuel you need ; 750 mls methanol, 200 mls oil and 50 mls nitro this will give a 5% nitro mix and a 20% oil mix.
