Fuel Mixing - Instructions

Here is an Excel Sheet that will do a couple of specific things. It allows someone to input specific percentages of various components (e.g., oil percentages, nitro percentages) and have the sheet output the measure of these components. This is what is listed as the "mixing" tab at the bottom of the spreadsheets.

First please go to this address and download the spreadsheet application, which will run in Microsoft Excel by clicking on this link.

After you have the sheet downloaded, click on it to open it and you will see the following:

By clicking the "mixing tab" you will see a sheet that looks like this:

fmx1

This sheet will allow you to input data in the areas of the spreadsheet that are tinted pink. You choose (at the top of the sheet) the percentage of nitro you want, the percentage of oil#1 that you want, the percentage of oil#2 (maybe castor), the percentage of additive#1 (Maybe prope, maybe nothing), the percentage of additive#2 (maybe nothing or whatever you use). The amount of Methanol will be automatically calculated.

You then decide the amount of fuel that you want to mix and put that in the first column. The amount can be in ANY measurement unit (ounces, liters, cc, etc.)

The amount of each component will be outputted and you are set to mix some fuel.

I have some fuel that I want to modify to another Mix.

How about when you have an existing quantity of fuel that you want to be able to use, but not in its current configuration? Here is another spreadsheet, which is the tab at the bottom called "reformulating".

This little applet will allow you to input the current amount, and configuration of a known "jug of fuel", and convert it to something completely different. This is something that I have had a need for a LONG time.

The sheet will look like this:

fmx2

 

This sheet asks for input from you in the yellow shaded columns, which is the current quantity of fuel and its specifics. Input this data.

Next input the configuration and quantity of fuel you want to have when you are finished converting the known quantity of fuel.

The amounts of each component will be outputted in the light blue column and "presto" you will have a new jug of fuel which has been changed from one configuration to another.

Hope you enjoy this applet !!!
