No, you should not run that in a car engine. R/C fuels are designed to work at lower temperatures, but running 2-3x the compression. You're most likely to burn a valve, or a piston.
Not only that, but 2 & 4 stroke glow fuels contain large amounts of oil in the fuel.
Either castor (Extremely bad stuff), or synthetic.
Most common fuels hover around 20-30% oil, 40-70% methanol, and 0-30% nitro methane.

I've flown R/C for a long *** time. We had one guy at the field put some 10% fuel with 25% synthetic oil (That means 10% nitro methane, 65% methanol, 25% oil) in his harley via a vacuum port. About a mile down the road the exhaust valve wasn't seating, and he was blowing huge amounts of oil out from killing the ring seal.
By the time he turned around and got half way back to the field it was siezed up.

That's 10%.



Putting that in your car would qualify you as an import moron.
If you want to be the biggest ------- moron, I'll be happy to sell you a quart of my custom blend I run in my Satio-180. 35% nm, 35% methanol, 30% synthetic oil.

Not to mention both methanol, and nitromethane are going to destroy every non-metal seal in your fuel system, and corrode anything aluminum it touches.
And I'm sure the thick oils used in 2 & 4 stroke glow engines are going to work *really* well in the pump & injectors & FPR.
