Hi all, I run Lasers, O.S, Saito and ASP four strokes. I would like to find one fuel that I can run all my engines on so I dont have to keep carrying around different types of fuel when I take more than one model to the field.
The Saito needs 10% nitro and synthetic oil to run properly but the Lasers are better on straight (I think)
Anyone got a view?

I use prosynth 10% in all mine, 2 lasers 5 saitos and 4 os 4 strokes, but not all at the same time.
Neil Tidey of laser fame reckons his engines can use up to 12% nitro before requiring modification and if you think they go well on straight you will be pleasantly surprised on 10%.

Hi Clive,I run everything on 10% including a laser, with no problems. I've no idea what he oil content is because nobody in France knows or cares

I used to run four strokes (Saitos and lasers) and a clutch of two strokes in fixed wings and helis on Bekra 10%. damned good fuel.
Now I no longer fly helis I fly the lot on pretty much any 5% nitro fuel I can find provided it is either fully or mostly synthetic oil.

I use Southern Modelcraft Mo Glow with 5% nitro. 15% synthetic oil & 2% castor...works perfectly on my 2 & 4 strokes & cost £10 a gallon.....
Only problem is you can only get it at the shows.....
The oil content is theoretically a bit low for a 2-stroke (most seem to recommend 18% oil) but as long as you tune a tad rich (I always trade a few revs for a bit of smoke!!) then you'll be fine......
