    Nitros come in A wide variety of percentages from 10% to 50%. Most people I've met use 30-33%. I like 20%, I get enough power to rip apart stock parts fairly easily with A good tune. And longer engine life than A higher %.

    No they are not. Nitro content is not all that matters, oil content does as well. Allot of fuel manufactures use diff oils & combos of oil in the fuel & can vary from 12% up to ~ 20% oil mix in the fuel. The oil in the fuel is usually part caster oil & some sort of other synthetic oil that will vary by manufacturer as well.
