Default Home Made Fuel %?

Hi,

I am planning on making my own nitro fuel for my Savage X 4.1, but i am not sure of the percentages of the ingredients i should use.

Another user on RCU wrote:
im interested in homebrewing my own fuel for car/trucks.

i want: 61% methanol, 15%synthetic, 3%castor, 20%nitro(will experiment with this figure), 1% acetone and a squirt of armourall.
Has anyone on this forum ever made their own fuel for a Savage? if so what percentages?

Thanks,
Damo

Hi there.

There shouldn’t be any need to use acetone in the fuel. The reason why somebody uses acetone (max. 3%) is when they don't use nitromethan. The acetone should give a better idle and transition IF you don’t already use nitrmethan.

What does the manual says about oil %?
What oil will you use?
