Default Nitro to compression conversion

Nitro to compression conversion is not something new, but the fuel can be VERY EXPENSIVE. You can expect to pay as much as $30 per quart for premixed. I've been developing a new formula for about 3yrs. I don't mind sharing with fellow modelers, especially if it saves us money for the fuel in the long run.

I use 2 ingredients for my mixture which is a "4-part mix". 3 parts store-pump diesel and 1 part WD-40. Many of you are going to dismiss this, PLEASE DON'T

Now let's get to the money aspect of all this.....

Diesel fuel in KNOXVILLETN right now is about $4.00 per gallon, so let's say $12 for diesel and WD-40 gallon is about $48. So added up is around $60. Divide that by 4 equals $15 per gallon. You can't by ANY commercial model fuels for that price per gallon.
