Thanks Cobra. I knew you'd love the name.....How about your kid puking in the hobby store! Now THAT was funny!

Anyways, I think it's a competition Heli fuel. Supposed to be very good, but the oil content is up there. 23%! Anyone have any reservations as to why we shouldn't run it?? It's 30% nitro.

Its about 7-8% too much oil if you ask me. Just no need for that much oil, it robs power. It certainly shouldnt hurt anything mechanically in a boat engine, just dont expect to much out of it. Its going to make a mess too

Is it castor, or Synthetic or blended?

The YoungBlood Helimix and the Standard Helimix both use 100% Klotz Synthetic oil.

WildCats have very good fuel, but if you wanted to use Helimix the Standard Helimix would have been better, it only has 18% oil content. it is a good fuel I used it before, now I am using WildCat Promix 35% Nitro 18% oil (95% Synthetic and 5% Degummed Castor).

James is right, 23% oil is too much. I wouldn't go higher than 18%.

Thanks for the advice! I'll see if I can take it back and trade for the 18%. I used to be pretty heavy into boats back when K&B fuel came in orange and white cans!!! I remember needing higher oil content but apparently I overdid it! Thanks guys.

Looks like I'm stuck with the fuel. I guess it won't hurt to burn it.

BTW Topfuel - It's 100% synthetic oil.

I have a gallon of 30% Coolpower that I was holding on to from my heli days...was going to try it, but not sure that it would work well.

Lee - I think the coolpower would work fine. If I remember correcly, it has 18% synth oil?? Some say that caster/synth blend is better for the engine, but I'm sure you'd be OK.
