The best fuels for general use have a combination of synthetic and castor oils

Typically 75/25 or 80/20

If you want to mix fuel on your own you should be aware that not all synthetic oils are miscible with Castor Oil (eg. Fuchs)

I just bought some fuel with 20% all castor oil. The 2 guys in line with me wanted to know why I wanted all castor.
