Could you tell the difference?

I have a case of Tower 15% nitro fuel and was about to order some YS 20/20 fuel for the four-strokes. Then it occurred to me that I might not be able to tell the difference.

What do you think? I'm going to use the 15% nitro fuel in all of my engines, both two-stroke and four-stroke.

Hi Ed -- I can't tell the difference!

I have been using 15% nitro fuel in all of my engines (2 & 4-stroke) sizes ranging from an Enya .09 to an OS 3.0 Gemini for over 18 years now. I use a custom blend from FHS, which is Red Max. The formula came from Clarence F. Lee; it is 15% nitro and 18% total oil of which 15% is synthetic and 3% castor. I used it in my YS .53, and still run it in my Lasers. As the saying goes, "It works for me!"

You will notice the difference in your four strokes. It may be too much nitro for the two strokes, though. Good for many heli engines.

I have been running 25% Omega in all my engines for about five years now and everything from LA15 to Saito 270T including YS91AC's really like it. Only thing I have had to do is adjust the plug heat range in some. The Saito 270T has been running since 1988 without even a set of bearings. I think the extra oil in Omega helps a lot with the heat dissipation. However, like Paul sez, it may make a difference (with lower nitro fuels).
