Adding oil to you fuel

nullIf you have 15/16 percent (nitro/oil) mix fuel and want to go for 20% oil – it can made help the OS .32 to run cooler and have a little more top-end power.

a = 1.28(d – c)/(1 – d/100)

a = amount of oil you need to add (in oz)
d = desired oil percentage (use 20 for 20%, for example)
c = current oil percentage (use 16 for 16%, for example)

So you if you want d = 20 (20% oil), c = 16 (actually you have 16% oil) result a = 6.4 (ie, add 6.4 oz of oil to each gallon of fuel).

Note that by adding oil, you're reducing your nitro % a little. My figures show that my nitro is now down to about 14.3%… Seems to be a good trade.
