Thumbs up TurboPower - Great washer fluid to use for meth/water injection :)

Just an FYI




http://www.recochem.com/en/products/...ld_washer_40c/

Been using it since day 1, works great..less than 1% dye/detergents...at the track I use a custom meth/water mix using 100% meth (home depot methyl hydrate) and deionized/distilled water whichever I find...

Nice how much do you get this for any cheap sites? Do they use deionized/distilled water in their mix?

Not sure on the water, think its regular water which isn't the greatest, should really be distilled/demineralized/deionized...using regular water has been considered bad and distilled water has been recommended due to apparent hard water buildup...i don't think this is even remotely possible to happen inside the engine given combustion

It costs $2.99/gallon

No nothing more, just a quick/cheap alternative to buying pure meth and avoiding the hassle of mixing your own...this is a VERY safe mixture to use daily driving...i use my windshield washer fluid tank as my "meth" tank so everything is as legit as possible lol

might as well let everyone else in on this little "secret" sauce lol

NOTE: This has no de-icer in it which you want to avoid, just water and meth and less than 1% dye/detergent

alright thanks, do you know if the OEM BMW washer fluid got the same specifications and can be used too? because I can get lots of bottles of it for a cheap price

Wow thats really cheap. I can get a 5 gallon drum of m1 which is 99% meth for $55. If i did 50/50 mix it would still come out to 5.50 gallon. I wonder how bad it is not to run distilled.

Not bad! It's 1/2 the cost of Boost Juice and still a 50/50 mix. Most wiper fluids I've seen are only 30% or less methanol.
