It apears that yourself and another of your club mates don't share the same opinion of diesel fuels.Â*
When I started using Amsoil I used it at the same 1.5% as I used IPN on my Fletcher CS Oliver.
Engine would continually take a few laps to warm up and come on properly then go like the clappers.
On relaying this information to Bob Fisher, the first thing he said was that I was using too much Amsoil.
He told me to go to only 1% Amsoil and problem will go away and It Did.
Now I can't talk for our fellow Northern Hemesphere modellers or for Chris in NZ. but here in Australia,
Bob says he uses this same mixture in all his diesel engines in All weathers all year round and has never had a problem.
Bellow is the recipe that Bob Fisher gave me.
Castor Oil - 100ml
KCB (Supercheap Auto) Kero - 250ml
Ether - 150ml
Amsiol - 5ml
For larger quantities, this make for your 30/50/20 mix with 1% Amsoil.
While on the fuel topic Ray, What's your opinion of Kero Vs A1 Jet?
Another thing that everyone seems to have a different opiunion on.
