HPI Power fuel for RTRs

HPI Power fuel for RTRs

HPI’s new Power Fuel was developed especially for modern RTR nitro engines, the company choosing to work with the manufacturers of the popular OptiFuel line of fuels, Europe’s most popular brand of helicopter fuel used by serious competitors and uses the same high quality Klotz synthetic oils as OptiFuel Optimix-Race blends. Available in 25%, 20% and 16% it makes starting and tuning nitros engines easy because its specific blend is more tolerant of incorrect settings and of temperature and humidity changes. The consistent burning provides a steady smoke trail allowing car and buggy owners to easily see the effects of engine tuning. Sold in 5L, 2.5L and 1L drums.
