VP Racing M1 Methanol

I've heard nothing but good things about this brand of methanol. The closest dealer/distributor I could find for this is in Pasco. They sell it for $6.39/gal in 5-gal pails and 54-gal drums. They do offer to ship, but it's a single pallet flat rate of $80.00. One pallet = 48 pails or 4 drums! So definitely not cost effective for personal use.

I might be in the area in a couple weeks and was thinking about investing in a drum to make it worth the distance and use. To make up for the extra, would there be any interest/demand in having the drum available for those to come down and fill up?

Does anyone have any knowledge of methanol availability in the area?
