    Methanol at 10%

    Hi Guys and girls,

    Just testing waters here. Heard loads of good stuff and few bad stuff but want to hear from smart people. Anyone did run or still does a methanol mixed with fuel in their cars? 1:10 ratio...

    Cheers

    Where do you intend to tank up with methanol? Brazil or Sweden?

    20l for about 30 makes it more expensive than running 100% petrol.
    I thought the purpose of running methanol was to lower costs?

    Petrol has 136% higher specific energy than methanol so you'll be driving like a granny.

    I would go for ethanol and fit a separate tank. Useful for parties and you can have a dram whenever you want one.

    10% Methanol with petrol (3 ltr Methanol/30ltr petrol) is loads of fun!
    Drive almost 2 years with this mixure.
