RC Car Fuel

Nitrotane Engineered gas rc car fuel
The fuel used for RC cars are special type fuels which you can buy at your local hobby shop. Be careful, fuel used by RC cars is different from gasoline and fuels for model airplane. Make sure you buy fuel made specifically for RC cars.

What are rc car fuels made of? For Radio Controlled cars, is it similar to petrol?

The fuel is made of methyl alcohol, nitro
methane (i.e. nitro), and lubricants. The
percentages used are normally guarded
secrets, but in general it is 70% – 10% –
20% respectively. Fuel with higher percentages of nitro provides more power, and is also more expensive. Beginners would do well with 10% nitro, while racers would normally use fuel with 20% nitro. Some fuels are blue, others pinkish. The color does not matter as long as it is fuel for RC cars.
