Once the controller is ready you will be able to find it on my site

I know most of you are not to this stage yet w/ Meth injection as you are waiting for a tuning option, but you can use this for future reference.

Nice find Matt. Let me know when you install yours, would like to see it done.

Should be cheaper than gas, per gallon by a long way. Based on bulk prices @ less than $1.00 per gallon.

NEVER going to happen. You will not find it cheaper than $175 for a 55 gallon drum and that is a smoking deal.

Hmm. I think 55 gal. is going to be a bit much to store in the garage. I expect that even at those prices it's a pretty good bang for the buck.

You can use denatured alcohol mixed with water as well. Cheaper and easy to find at home depot or the like.

Sniz, I may have a source for methanol at a really good price. VP is quite pricey, so I have been looking at alternatives. I am looking into it now. If you keep the Methanol in a dark place and in a metal drum that is sealed, then the life should be infinite.

the 4 gallons usually last me 2-3 months fyi.

but this is on a car that was born march '07 and today has 21k on the clock. the water/meth system was installed in aug. of '08. i've only purchased the 4-gallon boxes four times from snow and have 2 gallons left sitting in my closet.

someone with a heavier foot, or someone always in boost will go through the liquid gold much quicker. but trust me, once you all get it, you wont want to be racing all the time, its more fun to drive normally then step on it when the lane opens or a race comes by

keep me updated, doing some google searching has found me several places that can sell it for 160-190 fora 55 gallon drum, but the problem is shipping or picking it up. Really need to find a local supplier or someone that can ship for less than the cost of my car.
