I have a gallon Jug of race gas for my RC plan-It is 10% nitro-Could I run 1 gallon to 10 gallons of 93 octane pump gas?

Most r/c fuel i have seen is methanol and nitro with lots of oil mixed in as well,don't think it would do much for ya.

By the time you do that mix you'll have about 1% nitro in the tank -- not enough to even notice. However, with all the oil in RC fuel you could very likely foul your spark plugs.
Search for some threads from some other folks that wanted to dabble with nitro and you'll get a good idea what is involved.
