No pics but here is the video. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tpOCaGYyrOs Winthrop Harbor to Chicago and back north to Racine and back to Winthrop in about 60 minutes driving time. We did stop for a water break in Racine.

I cruise at 100-120 mph at 3 pounds of boost 4500 rpm at 2/3 throttle. Saves the engine that way. If I am at 8 pounds of boost or more I am going quite fast and not sure where I could stay in the throttle that long or even want to. I did use a fair amount at the Poker Run because of working the sticks in the water condtions.

Michael1 you are correct.

Brad,as far as running "windshield washer fluid" in your exspensive motor,I will re-state what I said again in case someone misunderstood this,A local supplier (super-flite oil co) sells 55 gallon drums of methanol alcohol,it contains no water,dye,soap etc, just typical industrial methanol alchohol. It's mainly used to mix windshield washer fluid to keep it from freezing but can be used for whatever you would use methanol alchohol for,the local drag and circle track guys have bought it this way for years for their motors,its no better or worse then what your getting because its the same stuff,Smitty

Superflite oil is a local petroleum product distributer in the mid Mi area,169$ a 55 gallon drum wholesale but I wouldn't be surprised if Kirk Jurinek called a few local places in you guy's area he could probably find the same deal. Have someone (like him) that has a automotive or marine business call a local oil distributer (the place I deal with sells 55 gallon drums of motor oil,gear oil,cases of oil,aeresol products by the 12 count,car wash supplys etc to automotive shops,they even have free drop gate truck delivery in their servicing area). The stuff used to be 69 cents a gallon a few years ago,it was so cheap they had to charge you for the drum. I can't see it being any more money in your area then mine if you find the right place,Smitty

This is cause.....Gasoline is for washing parts.

Gasoline is semi crap fuel.

In racing the only reason anybody uses gasoline is because the rules mandate it.

I believe (don't quote me) methanol is the equivalent of 116 octane gasoline.

And it cools your pistons, valves, etc. Although, it is corrosive to certain metals.
