Nitro Fuel


Recommended Posts

I have a couple of litres of nitro fuel left from when I had a radio-controlled truck.

Do I use it to kill the weeds on the patio, or could I pop it into the fuel tank and run the 2.5 petrol on it for a mile or two?

What might hapen to the engine, if anything?!

Quick answer,

Unless you run it almost neat, in a petrol powered engine adding your Glow plug mix will probably do nothing very interesting. (depending on % Nitromethane / Methanol mix)

Big Nitro mixes. If used in a large enough quantity to make any difference and you managed to make it run, then it would either burn your pistons up very quickly through a seriously lean mix or detonate your engine to pieces or both.

To get it to work reliably, your engine would need to be built with this specific fuel in mind and setup correctly. Don't mess unless you can afford plenty of rebuilds.
