Cheap is a word of days long gone. Nitro is around $65 a gallon and the oil is half that cost. And while suppliers can purchase larger quantities at a better cost, the savings isn't all that much. I just purchased a qt of nitro from our local speed shop in which he sold it to me for $13. Electrics are dominating and are nitro hobby is fading rather quickly. Therefore our fuel which was under $10 a few years back is almost triple. The shipping rules have changed and the rates have gone up to the point it in which it almost costs more for shipping than the product itself.

Ritch's brew is one source for fuel out of Texas. Stan from S&W fuels is another and probably the most competitive in price out of anyone. Brodak has fuel offerings both their version and Randy Ritch's from Ritch's brew. I'm almost positive S&W is providing Brodak's offering. VP fuels fron San Antonio Texas provides Powermaster fuel. Fitz Fuels is another source who also sells on EBAY.

I've been buying Morgan Fuels Sidewinder Race car fuel with a high nitro, low oil content (30N,10O and 20N,10O) in quarts, then blending the two along with Klotz BeNol to get the nitro/oil mixture that I want. While not inexpensive, it takes some time to burn thru a half gallon of fuel. Buying in quarts also eliminates the HazMat fees associated with gallon jugs.

I read this post and realized that I have only 1 Quart of fuel left. I went to the SIG website and ordered 3 quarts of 35% champion fuel. Total cost was $54 dollars including shipping which was $9.95.

Not cheap, but doable.
