methanol price/gal and average consumption

i just called up a place and it's $12.69/gal. For 335 meth users out there, what's your average consumption/week?

I get methanol from my local track, they sell it for $4 a gallon. I have a 5 gallon jug that I fill up maybe once a month or more for $20. I filled the jug up last month and still have a gallon left in the jug, and thats with a 80-20 mix but I have been using it alot this past month. Source a different spot you can find it cheaper thats way to much for methanol.

You could also get it from carparts.com. If your order is over 30 bucks it is free shipping so they sell the 4 gallons of boost juice for $27 so for 8 bottles it works out to 6.75 a gallon which is about half your local supplier. This is also pre mixed 49/51. It works just as well though. I ran it on my 03 cobra with 18psi and a lot of timing with no knock at 3 degree more timing over my pump gas tune which was already on the edge. I am in Los Angeles an I have yet to find a cheap local supplier.

According to people on another forums we can get good price from this shop but I have yet to be able to get in touch with them after a few calls. I'll call them again on Monday

Ya, I have tried to call them in the past as well. Not very reliable. If you get them and they are still selling, let me know.

Thanks
