New low viscosity oil fuel from Wildcat.

I just got off the phone with Jerry Conley at Wildcat and he told me they were coming out with a new fuel next week.
It's called 30% Helimix 3D-LV. With 22% oil. It's supposed to have more power without the drawbacks of low viscosity oil. He said they've been working on it for a while but didn't want to release it till it was perfect. It sounds like it has the best of both worlds. Low smoke, the smoke doesn't burn your eyes, and it smells good.
I can't wait to try it.

beats me. why does it?

a lot of people like LV fuels but have an issue
w/ the smoke cloud created by the usual LV
fuels like CP30 & Magnum. If the WC is lower
smoke, whats not to love?

Less smoke with LV22% oil,i'd bet it smokes a lot more than their 18% oil fuel they have now. I use RED MAX 30% fuel with 20% LV oil, i dont see the need for 22% myself. What i like about RED MAX is they will mix it with what ever type oil you want and what ever percentage of oil you want. DOUG

AHHH He said LOW SMOKE. Not LOTS of smoke. So why would
you think of magnum.

Now if Only Jerry could find a way to distribute WC around here I'd
buy it.
now why does that make me think of magnum fuels

Jerry,

Is Wildcat available in metal cans? I don't know if you're aware of this, but within the 5 boros of NEw York City, shops are not allowed to store fuel in bottles, only metal cans in a fireproof locker are allowed.

I don't know if NYC is the only place with this restrictive fire code, but I've never seen it anywhere else yet.

I've never seen WC in metal cans (nor have
I ever seen CP or Magnum or S/W).

the only metal can fuels I've seen are PowerMaster and Weston (imp. gl)

The LHS did have some Magnum in cans a year or two ago, but I haven't seen any since, only Powermaster.

I really liekd the Powermaster 20/20 4 stroke fuel in my YS 4 bangers, but their 30% heli fuel hasn't performed for me as well as Cool Power and Magnum. I've been driving to a shop outside the city that carries Cool Power, but it's getting to be a pain.

Thanks, Z. I hope you're right. My crew is going to get a big order together in the next few months, and we were planning on trying WC.

Wouldn't be the first time The Empire put the squeeze on a vendor and cut out quantity deals to the little guy, in the name of preserving their sales.

It has been for a couple years now. Nothing new. You can still buy it direct, in quantity, just not for resale.

Oil

Doug,

Oil content is directly proportional to viscosity. If you lower the oil's viscosity you must increase the volume for equal protection. Our standard Heli fuel uses an 18% oil content but has a higher viscosity, hence, with our new 3D LV the lower viscosity means we had to raise the oil content proportionately. Yet the new blend has all of the properties of our standard line as well.
