Just wondering. Can a nitro motor run on camper fuel (My TT 70). Because I saw a video of a guy running his on WD-40 LOL , so am I guessing they can run on almost anything. You see I have 2 gallons of camper fuel in my garage, and would like to use it if I can..

Run it in your weedeater. I use Camper fuel in my chainsaws too. Never tried it in a nitro motor before. Post a video if you get it running!

I believe the video you saw was someone running WD40 in a gasoline motor ?

Edit: I saw the videos you're referring to .....

Don't know how the motor would run (reliability) or longevity.....

And as far as I know, camper fuel has NO oil for lubrication......

Please video and post your results

Been there, done that and old enough to know better.....

Nope. It is a small nitro motor (2.5cc) that I watched (He squirted a can of the stuff into the tank), and the pulled the start cord. Low and behold the motor started running with smoke from the exhaust pipe, as for the camper fuel. How much oil should I add to one gallon (so the connecting rod's bushing gets well oiled), and what make of oil should I use (Should I add some caster oil in the mix too)...

Oh, the glow plug that I'll try will be a OS four-stroke one....

Wish me luck. Because my TT 70 has new parts fitted, so has to be broken in, and how many tanks will that take..

Any advice will be very grateful to me,as I don't want to damage my motor that's going into me Savage truck,. It's extended, so it's like a 1/5th scale truck..

Your glo motor will run on Camping fuel only with the glow plug being energized.
I use a 40:1 fuel oil ratio in my weedeater, chainsaw and aquascooter. The oil I use is Evinrude's XD100 which is a full synthetic.
I also use this same mix to store my glo motors long term. Keeps the internals corrosion free!

The lot I got is not a lot, but I thank God a lot for the lot I got!

Do you mean the glow plug being energized means a battery connected all time when running??

Glow plugs continue doing their job after battery source is removed thanks to one of the metals in the heating element (Platinum) catalytic reaction to methanol in the glow fuel.

Since camper fuel has no methanol, glow plug will not react once power source is removed. Thus engine will stop.

A gasoline engine, on the other hand, has continuos timed "spark" thanks to a magneto or electronic ignition and why camper fuel can be used in such.

Personally, I think you are flogging a dead horse .......

Your motor is not designed to run on camper fuel so I think you are wasting your time as well as possibly damaging the motor ......

It's your motor, though, to do as you wish !!!
