Redcat Racing Pit Stop How to RC Nitro Series: RC Nitro Fuel Storage Tip
Leaving Nitro fuel in the sun will cause the combustibles in the fuel to evaporate quicker. That pressure release sound you hear when opening the fuel bottle is evaporated liquids.
Store Fuel in a cool dark place
To lengthen the shelf life of your fuel, store it in a cool dark place. If i’m at the track all day, I make sure to store my fuel in the shade outside of my full scale ride. I also like to bring an inexpensive cooler bag. You know the ones with the zipper. Placing a couple cold packs inside the bag along with the fuel will help to keep it cool, even in the scorching heat. This is an easy way to keep your fuel fresh longer.
