    Methanol Mix Tests Science Over Fiction

    OK, so I've run some sudo-scientific tests to evaluate some of the solutions we are attempting to blow into our motors with our Meth Injection Systems.

    Mind you this is pretty much off the cuff, and I had a beer prior so the actual results may vary.

    For the test I used a new bottle of SuperTech -20 washer fluid from my local Walmart, a 4+ year old bottle of sealed Peak -20 purchased at BJs about 4 or so years ago. Well, before we moved to our current house so... say 5 to be safe.

    Our measuring device is an American calibrated Proof/Tralles intended to measure purity of distilled spirits. So the ABP (Alcohol By Percent) should be roughly accurate, however this test will not account for adjuncts or any addition possible chemical ingredients.

    To start the test, I measured drinking water (as they were out of distilled water) from a sealed jug. It measured at 2%, and give that out correction for temps was about -2, I think we were right on track.

    Next I measured a bottle of yellow HEET, purportedly 99% Methyl Alcohol. It rang in at 101~102, hard to tell as the scale sort of ends at 100. But I'd call that accurate.

    Second was the sealed bottle of ST -20, and I read it to be 45~46, so given the correction factor it's 43% Meth/Water!

    Up finally was my vintage bottle of Peak -20. It measured out to an astonishing 43 (41 corrected)!!!! If the seal is intact and it's stored away from sunlight it really is not that volatile! I guess I should go find a new bottle of Peak to be sure.

    Next I added the full bottle of HEET to the ST -20, and it brought it up to 54, so that's our 50/50 mix. Bottle of cheap -20 washer fluid and a bottle a cheap fuel de-icer.

    Argue amongst yourselves.

    Oh, I'm sure some will argue. "You didn't use a gas spectrometer" or "you rounded all the numbers"

    Snow performance Boost Juice measures out at roughly 48-49% @ $6 a gallon.

    So there are savings to be had!!!!

    It has been thoroughly tested on multiple forums. I trust the results from that many data points.

    It's pure speculation and smoke and mirrors and snake oil.

    Buy that much heet and it will be assumed you have a meth lab.

    We had cops come in to O'Reilly's back when I worked there one day and told us that if anyone came in to buy anything over 5 bottles of heet besides a shop customer to give them a call LOL! Never had it happen, but I had some people buy a bottle or two that looked like there car wasn't in need of it but there 'body' was! Good findings Swordy!!
