GIAC doesn't have numbered maps. The Race maps on the map switcher (either Stage 1 or Stage 2) are the ones for methanol.

The previously mentioned comment is correct. To run our software with water-methanol, you would want to switch to the "Race" map. Your normal 91/93 octane file is stored under "Pump", while the "Race" map is for 100 octane or 91/93 octane with the addition of water-methanol. We tune our maps for 50/50 water-methanol, so we recommend this mixture ratio.

In the meantime, you can run water-methanol with the pump map. The DME will advance timing a bit and give you some better performance, but there are certainly more gains to be had on the Race file.
