No less than 25% nitro and no less than 18% oil if you want them to run well and last more than one or two runs

For those 3 engines and to find that happy medium I'd use a good fuel made for boats in the 45% area.
The easiest to get now is the AquaCraft Grimracer line of fuels that either you can order through Tower Hobbies or have your local hobby shop get for you. It's good stuff as a lot of racers in this area use it.
