Default Re: What gas is best?

Yep that's about it River... catch is, try finding a 50cc(ish) true diesel. The RC "diesel" engines are about the closest - but that's not actually pump diesel fuel, it's a mixture of kerosene, ether, castor oil, amyl nitrate or isopropyl nitrate & would be prohibitively expensive to run @ about $30 a gallon.

Of course I'd LOVE it if someone proved me wrong by finding a 50cc that'd run on pump diesel, I've been lookin' and lookin' - I wants one bad There's been some talk about conversions but the problem is the compression for a diesel needs be so high that they're suffering destruction of all major components in the modified engines as the result...
