    Traxxas fuel

    Hello all I have been looking for Traxxas 20% fuel my Hobby town always used to have fuel in stock and the past 2 years they have been incredibly lazy to get any in. This is my first Nitro truck and this is the only hobby town in the area and I get the run around of "it will be in the next shipment and it's like a broken record, Is there any way I can order a gallon online? I checked around but all these sites I come across only want to sell me 4 gallons at a crazy price I mean I don't need 4 of them laying around lol. As a first time Nitro owner I could use the help of where to go. I hope I posted this in the right forum if not you can move it. Thanks for the help guys I hope all is well.

    all the sites will only sell you 4 gallons, why dont you use a different fuel like bryons, wildcat, powermaster, o donelles speed blend? all good fuels

    I have looked all over high and low for other various fuels as well and can't find any. This is literally the only nearest hobby store. EVen if I have to go out of state i'm not sure where there is a hobby store. Do you know why all these sites will only sell 4 gallons? lol

    It the hazard of shipping/permit your need I believe when shipping this stuff, stinks but there is no way around this that I know of. Unless you find someone from your LHS to go in halves with you?

    I wonder if there is someone who is higher up in the hobbytown store that I can talk to about having no fuel because I even talked to the mamager and they keep saying it will be in the next shipment which is each Thursday.

    What do you do? just go the 63 miles? I'd go out of state not far to find some fuel but just don't know where in a surrounding state that there would be a hobby store.

    That's the only nearby hobby town :-/ I'm going to check out a few of the small mom and pop shops that showed up on the locator I know they need the money through the hard times we're in.

    yeah thats true they sure do need it, look into other fuels too, odonnell speed blend is a good fuel, and wildcat i hear, alot of them carry those brands. cheaper than traxxas 20%+30%. i would perfer speed blend over wildcat though.

    Tower sells fuel by the quart, but it's expensive that way. Traxxas fuel is $11.99 a quart, plus shipping.
    I need R/Cers anonymous.
