whatever it likes in the conditions you run in.....Oil content will play a role though. When we run our nitro boats, we are constantly at full throttle, we need the higher oil content in our fuels. Cars are on and off of the throttle, so their motors can suffice with lower oil content fuels. I have been running Trinity platinum 30% nitro and 12% oil with decent results with my dynamite .32. This weekend, i'm going to try a heli fuel that has a higher oil content...14-16% at 30% nitro. We'll see how the .32 likes the higher oil content.

Red Max and

WildCat are also a good fuel, only to name a few.

Omega or cool power 30% have good oil content and I have had no issues with it.

When you change the Nitro content, it also means retuning the engine. the setting you have for 25 or 30% Nitro will not normally work at 15%.

U can tune your motor to run on 10% Nitro if you want, but you wont be getting the performance. if you don't plan on racing and all you want is have fun playing around, 30% is a good number.

Its up to you.
