The Problem

Giant-scale R/C vehicles are powered by small displacement 2-stroke engines. These engines require a gasoline-type fuel mixed with an oil lubricant. This form of fuel and R/C vehicle are generally easy to tune and provide good power, but there are a few signicant drawbacks to using the typical pump gas you buy down at the corner store. So, what are you really getting at the gas station?
Regulations for the gas at your local service station are constantly changing and evolving to the point that their chemical makeups are ok to use in your automobile but tend to wreak havoc to the fuel system components of your expensive R/C vehicle. Today, the gas at most pump stations contains 10-percent ethanol, and that is set to increase to 15 percent in the near future, and has in some places. The ethanol is said to act as a detergent to keep the entire fuel system clean; what they don’t tell you is that ethanol attracts moisture and tends to deteriorate all of the components from the fuel lines to the gaskets in the carburetor. The ethanol will do a good job of breaking up any gunk that rests in the fuel tank, but that gunk will be sent through to the carburetor, or plug any lters in the system. If you leave fuel in the tank, it will attract moisture and contaminate the fuel, which can lead to problems starting the engine.

The Solution: PowerMixTM

PowerMix premixed R/C fuel contains NO ETHANOL and is currently available in three versions, 40:1, 50:1 and 25:1. PowerMix is extremely stable for a long shelf life, lasting for over 2 years in its sealed container, or for several months in the fuel tank of your R/C vehicle. The PowerMix fuel blend has been thoroughly and specically tested in the wide array of small 2-stroke giant-scale R/C engine applications and utilizes the highest quality 100% synthetic oil on the market. PowerMix produces tons of power, improves throttle response and provides a smoother, more linear power band vs. pump gas. This results in easier tuning and lower engine temperatures – Not to mention eliminating fuel system failures, downtime and costs relating to problems caused by ethanol.
