Is it ok to change your fuel type or is it best to stick with one?

I've heard many a time on here and at the field that it is perfectly fine to change brands of fuels. You may or may not have to change tuning of the engine just have to see how it acts. That said, personally, I try to stick with one brand of fuel I've run in the motor if I can. I would only pretty much switch brands if I absolutely had to, but thats just me.

It is fine to change fuel brands and %, only you might have to re-tune somewhat. It is also a good idea to change to glow plug.

I wouldn't recommend...
changing fuel types.Nitro,gasoline,jet-A1(or whatever turbine fuel one might use), etc. are types of fuel.
You may,however, change brands of fuel and nitro percentages. Just re-tune as stated above.

Just joking with ya,by the way. I am in a smart@55 mood today.

I need to get a second job just to buy parts.
