making nitro fuel is  simple....

25% castor oil + 75% methanol
or
20% castor oil + 80% methanol

u can always add 5-15% nitro methane....
i.e. 20% castor oil + 15% nitromethane + 65% methanol

castor oil available at medical shops.. and rest at chemical shop..

i mix my own fuel....
methanol =  Indian Rupees 50/lt
castor oil =  Indian Rupees 200/400ml

so  5 lt fuel  comes  for  Indian Rupees  700

So where does one get Castor oil.
The local chemist sells castor from Dabur (Erand tail), which looks more like an edible item...Can this one be safely used?

Also, another post specified using Agarwal Medical Grade Castor Oil...I could not find this anywhere.

Any help appreciated

Hi Girish,

you are correct, my findings say, there are commonly two grades of castor oil available, the first is the refined/filtered and purified version which is used for consumption under medication. this is almost double in cost.

The other version may not be suitable for consumption and is mostly un-branded generally used for external applications etc. this is almost half the cost of filtered one and is mostly availble in large volumes as compared to prior one (2 to 5 litre), some smaller shopkeepers sell this loose and one can purchase this from them. i got this @ Rs. 250/litre.

The later one is fit for our kind of applications.

So you are basically looking at correct product but maybe you may look for less expensive variant.

Thanks,
Sandeep

Many thanks Sandeep,
Since I'm planning to brew nitro fuel for the first time, my concern was that this branded version should not contain any alternative additives, which might harm the engine (don't want to run the engine on added vitamins or minerals Wink). Also heard that there is Castrol M which is rarely available.

I'll try to look for the other variant you talk about. ATM I also do not plan to add any nitro to the mixture. simple 80-20 ratio.

Thanks

Hi Girish,

yes, even i use simple 80-20 mixure of Methanol and castor, to run up my engine, Castor oil is natural product(extracted from some seeds) and i heard that some ayurvedic prescriptions need this, but, im sure these are much refined versions.

The second option can be bought from purani dilli (khari bowli) area where there are many shops, but they may sell 5 litres as minimum qualtity (which was too much to consume for my case), i got this from a local ayurvedic shop, who sold me loose as i made this clear to him that i do not need this for medicinal use.

Thanks

just get the commercially available Methanol.  This is available at Chemical suppliers in every city who supply to schools, Colleges and hospitals.  You may take their number from yellow pages and ask them for the Methanol... Today they may be reluctant to sell you due to some states putting restrictions on sale of methanol.... but as commercial cleaning agent he may be able to sell you slamm quantities.... enough for your hobby needs...  The same shops also store commercially used castor oil.. yes it is used as a laxative in medicine.

Well I been into aeromodelling since I was in School....  had won the "WINGS Open" at "Bombay" (as it was known then) in 1985 for control line aerobatics (was doing my graduation at that time) and had received a big gold trophy....  Mr Bhivandiwala organised it and gave good awards.
Our team had won the following medals:-
1.   Gold for Control Line Aerobatics
2.   Silver and Bronze for Control line speed
3.   Bronze for Free Flight Glider
Sharma Models helped us train to win the medals
