With the fuel talk that's been going on, when I spotted this, thought it was cool, and figured I'd post it:

This old manual shows fuel variation numbers and has a section on fuel but does not give specific percentages.

If I remember, Duke Fox published a short column each month in one of the mags called "Duke's Mixture" where he gave advice and information about engines and fuel.

The page that Kim posted had a reference to the Little Gem --- that brought back memories since it was the first scratch build that I put together. There wasn't much to it and the diamond ribs made for an easy build.

I prefer the Fox plugs. Never had an issue. Never tried their fuel though. I guess I will eventually.

So is Superfuel.

If I remember correctly, Superfuel was recommended for the Fox .35, Missile Mist for .15 and smaller for regular running and for combat, etc. for contest use. I think the Dukes fuel was for RC use.

BTW, I like Fox plugs also.
