    Just curious.How many gallons did you burn this year?

    OK. The year is coming to a close and I was just curious how many gallons of nitro you burned this year through how many vehicles.(you can fudge only if your wife reads this stuff and she would leave you if she really knew how much money you spent on RC stuff)I'm on gallon #12 through one beat up 4909. Whoever burned the most might get.....uh.....something. Geezer

    I am at 4.25 gallons, got the truck for my birthday in late sept. One of my LHS use to sell nitro for about 27 or 28 a gallon, making it feasible to drive so often

    Gallon 16 opened...Gallon 17 waiting in the cabinet.
    I keep all my empty jugs to keep track through the year. got enough for a couple of frames of T Maxx bowling.
    I may have left a couple of empties at the track but I would have to look at my reciepts to know for sure...and thats a scary thought.
    No slipper/tall gearing/power = broken parts.

    That is scary, Snook Man!

    I have probably been through one gallon. I guess I dont get out as much as the rest of you! Of course, I was saving for a house so the T-Maxx wasnt touched from January until after May.

    Umm 4-5 gallons of Top Fuel. 3 gallons and a quart of Trinity Monster brew. 3 gallons of Byrons Gen II. 1 gallon of Odonnell's 30% and I just picked up another gallon of Odonnell's last weekend just waiting on parts to start burning some fuel (watch it will start snowing when I get all the stuff to run my savage and revo)
    What shall I put here?

    Less then 1/2 gallon. After having sports with the kids, work, and vacation, I finally blew my first 3.3 (about 7 gallons on it). Got around to a replacement 3.3 and only got a chance to break it in and about 2 tanks after that. Maybe, just maybe in 09 I can get out and burn some nitro.

    Right now the maxx is completely apart with all the parts in bags, engine with a bunch of AFO in it, and all bearings soaked in a seperate bag. But I did put all the bags and tools in my Wing Tote bag, so they won't stare at me when I go in the basement.

    I bought one in January. Haven't really and the time to run much. A tank here and there. Just bought second gallon other day. Price went from 23.25 for Byrons 30/11 gen 1 fuel to the new stuff (Byrons gen 2 30/11) at 35.99.

    I guess I can live with that. I barely put $34 in my Tahoe today instead of $90-100 a couple months ago.
    Pay It Forward.
