Jase said its metho and water that you need to inject into it not methanol


Yeah metho is another option but I don't think it's as beneficial as methanol. I think I'm just gonna put it off for now anyways, just hopefully the guy that's doin my tune gets it right and I don't melt any pistons lol.

I don't see why it can't be used in burnout comps but still not be allowed in racing. I guess it's still the old story about it's safety, which is a joke as it is a safer fuel than unleaded.

As far as needing training to put out the fire if it was to happen, you simply use water!

It could bring quite a few more entrants from a higher level which would also attract more spectators, win win situation.

As I've said before there has been several cars using it at dirt circuit burnout comps without incident.
