Default More power, use less gas on Methanol injection

I have found the miracle fuel even though it is old technology with a high tech twist. I just dialed in my methanol injection and I am really impressed. This was a complete marine system that was setup for my engine not like those auto aftermarket sytems that are a little scary. I can run 93 octane with 12 pounds of boost and a side bonus we needed to go 10 sizes down on jetting which saved on gas. The meth only comes on at 8 pounds of boost and I only use a few gallons each time I go out. The meth is only $3.00 a gal. I am no longer running race gas and I am using less gas and making more power. http://www.iceinjectionsystems.com/

Your right I did pay 250 something for a drum. I went to 38 pitch instead of 35. I could pull more jet out of it but my EGT's were at 1350 and the O2 said I was rich. But it made so much power I thought that is enough. It was better than the race gas setup.

So let me get this straight Brad , from race fuel to 93 + meth , same 12 lbs of [email protected]@st and you upped 3 pitchs of prop ..Basically every pitch is 3 mph so you gained 9 mph and changed no pulleys ???? just meth sprays at 8 lbs ???

It is amazing how much power can be had even prior to adding more boost by just getting rid of the super fat jetting that is know longer needed for cooling the charge.

Were real happy that your MTI is running so well and that you have her so well dialed in.

Please keep us posted and send us some picks and or videos when you have time we would love to add them to the web site.

Byrdman has that on his stuff as well.

Does the meth get effected by temperature and humidity levels like the meth drag cars?? Those guys have different tunes from AM to PM. Also, the meth jets are bigger than gasoline.

What's also weird is fuels like E-10/E-85 etc. consume more fuel because meth burns at a lower fuel ratio than gasoline...
