    Actually nitro fuel doesn't explode, the flame travels really quick but then it just burns until the fuel is gone. I don't think it will combust unless put under pressure which is why good compression in your engine is so important. It's still not a good idea to smoke it lol

    When i used to smoke many moons ago i had accidentaly dropped a lit smoke into 3/4 of a gallon of nitro fuel on the floor. I remember the cig falling threw the air perfectly into the top of the pour hole on the bottle like it was a movie in slow motion. Needless to say nothing happend cause im still here but please dont try that. The smoke snuffed out like it was dropped in a gallon of water. I dont think i could replicate doing that again if i tried to.

    As mentioned above and IMO as well, nitro needs compression and or alot of heat to combust just like diesel fuel.

    nitro it sell won't explode but take a freshly emptied nitro bottle and put a lighter to the open end and watch it take off like a rocket. its always good for a good laugh.
