If you're buying online,Torco 30% is about the best buy.
I think it's $104 a case delivered now...No HAZMAT fees.

Their price is the same for an nitro %

There are cheaper fuels but delivery fees make them more expensive in the long run.

You don't NEED 30% for the flying you describe but Torco 30% is about the same price as 15% of any other brand if you take fees into the equation.

I use Torco myself and it runs really well and even has a better smell and taste to it.lol....

I literally never use the word literally right.

Where did you see that price? On their site now and a case is $136.68 plus $30.95 shipping.

I used to fly it but was at a class with Todd Bennet and Matt Botos and they both didn't like it. Not that I can tell the difference but they said to get away from it.

I guess it's up to $125 now but still free shipping.

Maybe a little bias there.lol....

What we did at our field was ask the LHS owner if he could cut us a deal. And he did. But there are some rules.

He orders twice a year. Once in April and again when he runs out or in July. We take an order at our club meeting in March and submit it to him and he orders it. You have to buy a case at a time, but who can not use a case? He holds it and the club members pick it up on there own. And they pay for it when they pick it up. No collecting of money and the LHS takes credit cards. I believe I pay $125 for a case of Byron's rotor rage. You can also get cool power.

It dose not hurt to ask. The LHS is going to order fuel anyway, you can just piggy back on to there order.

Thanks for replies. Does anyone remember what fuel was selling for at IRCHA last year. Maybe I will fill my suv with 8 cases or so.

If there's a "brick and mortar" hobby shop in your area (likely is in Memphis), then most of the major manufacturers won't sell directly to you. Morgan is 100% this way. They won't even talk to you unless you can prove you own a storefront hobby shop. That's my experience with them anyway. Most of the others are like that as well.

Good luck.

I've been using Wildcat almost exclusively for years because I can purchase it either at the Toledo Show or through their Club Purchase Program.

Give them a call. Sometimes you need to work the phone.

Magnum used to be the best ($18/gallon for 30%). I just checked their website and they have gone way up in the past year. I guess nitro just needs to go away if the suppliers can't provide cheap fuel prices. Nitro's chief use is as an industrial cleaner. It is about 93% pure for cleaning purposes and cost about $3/gallon. It should not cost much more for 99% purity. Bend over boys or go electric.

Isn't Mach 7 still around? a.k.a. Morgan, but you can order that "brand" to your doorstep.

Wildcat was at Ircha I think it was 19-20 bucks a gallon for for pick up there.

Which is worse, ignorance or apathy? I don't know and I don't care!

Well I guess I forgot to say that I too have a brick and mortar storefront. My hobby is a archery retail store that I try to make a living in

I've always found the best pricing with Wildcat. The key is to buy in quantity. If you don't buy in quantity shipping is going to be a killer.
