Most of the shops in my area are now closed for good. The only one in Brooklyn (that is still around) that carried Morgan Cool Power said he will no longer carry it since no one is flying these days. Had to buy a case from AMain recently with the $50.00 hazmat fee. First time killed me. Wayne - Fly it like you stole it! You're in good hands with Runryder!

Bell47Man Down to my last two bottles of Wildcat
Double frown. Wildcat was bought by Byron Fuels almost 7 years ago -and Byron has announced they are discontinuing production. Those two jugs are nearly collectors pieces!

Eury I run VP 30%. Cases are 6gal and cost $190 so about $33 a gallon. I get it from the local VP distributor in Eliot ME. Call and tell them what I want, it comes on a truck with the rest of their order and I go get it.

I’m actually switching to 23.5%, that was $180 a case. I have 5 more cases coming next week.
I'm within reasonable driving distance to Eliot. Do you have contact info?

Lauren at Eastern VP. +1 (207) 439-3568

It’s less if I buy 5 cases or more at a time, the price I listed was for 5 cases (30 gal). It goes up and down by a few dollars over the years. I usually have a couple guys who go in with me, this time no one was interested. Posted a few places online and contacted people who said they wanted some and no one came through so I’m stocked up for a while now.

Just order Torco 20% as well. Figured it's worth a shot. I have been using CP 30 for 15 years and it's been great. Do mostly sport flying now and really don't need 30% for that, so it'll be nice to save a few bucks on 20% as well as a big plus to be able to order it from Amazon or ebay if need be.

I drive down to Allentown a couple times a year and pick up a few cases from S&W. Been using it now for probably 3 years and it's great.
