I ordered several quarts last November, still on backorder. I keep in touch and am being told it will get done.

If this is a sign of things to come I would consider placing an order. Either they will produce more to compensate or at very least you will be able to stockpile.

The cost of my 2 gallons of 100% Nitro were $54 ea , free shipping a few years back

Nitro is used in industry so still a needed commodity .....but one or more sources had disasters as well as china tariffs and or imbargos

Current cost of 1 gallon Torco delivered approaching 90 dollars

Methanol locally still reasonably cheap

Many oils and blends are readily available and stable prices last 10 years

a few gallons of Nitro can be stored indefinitely out of direct sun (UV degrades the chemical)

I highly recommend to stockpile the base elements BUT still buy commercial fuels when possible....

reblending is easy.... for Cox use start with high nitro low oil car or heli fuels....best bang for the buck

I think the writing has been on the wall for nearly a decade. When you begin to discover that most of your desired nitro accessories are becoming more and more difficult to obtain, this certainly sends a message that directions are shifting. I was at the R/C field yesterday, not one nitro plane was in use. When I do see anything engine related, they're usually gasoline.

There are only a couple of other guys in my club that continue to fly nitro. Fuel is becoming scarce and very expensive -- if you have to order on-line, hazmat charges are killers. The nearest hobby shop in my area that now sells fuel is 140 miles away; that makes for a long and costly drive in itself. I've been casting around looking for nitromethane and methanol in bulk with the possibility of mixing it myself.

Ya well ...I've had my fill of these troublesome electric planes myself and am going BACK to nitro. You need a degree in advanced electronics repair to keep electrics usable! Don't need the hassle!

SIG champion fuel Empty my Sig fuel order 2018

Post  roddie on Tue Feb 25, 2020 7:30 pm

Maybe just a slow period for Sig. I've always ordered "quarts" from Sig.

My most recent fuel-order;

SIG champion fuel 2018_f10
SIG champion fuel 2018_f14

From the left-side; that's X2 qts. of Champion 35 then X1 qt. castor.. then X2 qts. of Champion 25.

It's not cheap.. but then.. you can't take it with you.. can you.. ?

I miss teh Sig Champion fuel here. All we can get here locally is stuff by Morgan Fuels. And even then, sometimes they don't stock what I would like, and won't bring it in even. SO I pretty much stay with the Omega 5% for my larger nitros, and I luckily found an older gallon of Omega 25% on my last trip to Grand Forks.

I went to the Sig site and started checking out 35% nitro there was no warning of a back order.
Perhaps the warning only shows after you pay. I did not take it that far.
