Ah, I see.   BTW, about 10 years ago, we had a hobby shop burn down. They had about a dozen gallon jugs of nitro in the middle of the store......

Oops.

Which can't you buy?  Castrol 2 stroke oil is readily available around

hobby shop for use in the little motors in small model airplanes.
It's also on Amazon.
