If it's the same stuff they run in rc boats it's 27.00/gal. and hobby store should sell it.

Not sure if this is what you are looking for.

The nitro is a component of the RC fuel, just as menthanol, castor oil, synthetic oil(ie Klotz Techniplate), benzol (I'm showing my age), gasoline, etc. FYI I think the top fuel cars have backed the nitro content down to the 80% range.
Just curious, what are you doing with it?
