That might be a good idea Craig in your limited jet class. Most things I've read say the oxygenated fuel isn't worth anything with the big tune-up but could very well be worth experimenting with in your current class. If you do give it a try, hope you share the findings.

I'll probably start with 5 gallons to test back to back with the NOS120 Renegade. I've got half a drum left of it so I may have to use it up unless I can sell it for near retail. But I want to do the testing and see what results are. I'll let you guys know what I find.

You know a lot more about nitrous tuning than I do so you know it takes a lot more Q16/K16 than NOS120. That's always been the question why use an oxygenated fuel w/ nitrous when we're already supplying additional oxygen through the nitrous jet? Could be worth testing and would be interested in how much the jet spread closes up.

Supposed to rake 3 to 5% more fuel. The more fuel you can burn, the more power.

Yes, they have a location in Bowling Green. I just take my drum and they refill it.
