Default Type of nitro

Hey guys,

Its about that time to order a case of nitro for my boat. I have a .21XM and have tried to find the answer in other posts. My question is, without requireing too much of your time, is the importance of different kinds of nitro. I am thinking about the Cool Power by Omega 40% with 17% oil(this is what my LHS can get.). I know the prefered fuel is Odonnell boat fuel, however the Omega says airplane fuel. Is there anything I need to know before ordering.


Thanks

Scott

That should work fine in your O.S. 21 XM.

Well as luck would have it, my LHS just called and said he can only get 40% fuel with 8% oil from his vendor. Do you recommend I just order from Tower or is there any other place you would suggest.

Thanks

You can ad Sig Castor Oil to the fuel to increase the oil. Tower Hobbies is always willing to sell fuel.
