Duh... and you shall find. Try "PROcede."

btw -- if you have an E92, that's the 335i Coupe, not Sedan. The Sedan is the E90.

Sugar in the gas tank, its easily an extra 20 hp, helps with combustion in the cylinders, like running nos without all the work

ive found one cup of sugar with every 10 gallons of gas works best

Us racers know that Urine is easier for transport than sugar. It breaks down quicker than sugar also. The more dehydrated you are(more yellow) the better it is as it mixes into the gasoline more efficiently. Definitetly try to go in the tank BEFORE you fill up, this way it mixes better. Performance gains are felt immediately.

While that has worked GREAT in the past I had a few issues. One, sometimes Id get this blue colored smoke from my exhaust which really unnerved me. Secondly, there were times when I had the extra power for too long and I couldnt turn it down a notch. It just wanted to race the whole time.

Also, for those of you with a single width garage, the car can swell and not fit in the garage. You'll find yourself parked outside all night.

I think a little cow pie and some PBR in the tank is a good mix. It's all about methanol!
