How many of you custom mix your nitro fuel?

I bought some castor oil from a drug store to add to my Traxxas Top Fuel 20% and I'm deciding on how much to add. I don't want to ruin a whole gallon of fuel doing this.

What I want to do is increase the cooling properties of the Traxxas top fuel. I will experiment with different mixes and let you guys know.

i hope you can make a coctail that works well for you,if you can share it,unless you race and want to keep an edge;)

i've been looking for info like this for a while. the only fuel the lhs sells is sidewinder race blend, which has only 12% oil. i'm only a casual rc'er so i would like to get as much life out of my engine as possible. one question though: if my engine is not overheating,(it's not,i use a temp gun) will there be any benefit to increasing my oil content as far as longevity goes?
