Meth Usage

Hey guys, i was wondering how long you guys can run between having to fill up the meth tank. I know know different tanks/nozzles/pumps play a big role in this, but i'm just trying to get a gist on how quickly the average N54 user goes through meth so i can stock while i'm somewhere it's readily available.
Thanks for any input.

P.S.- several searches revealed nothing but pages and pages of threads where people mention the word meth, not much useful info.

I fill up about once or so a month, but I don't use meth all the time.

About a month but you can kill it in a day if you are relentless.

I usually refill my tank (3/4 gal) once a week. If I drag race, I'll use over half the tank up that night and I drag race at least every other week. I'd say I go through a 5 gallon pale of meth every 2 months, sometimes quicker. I use ~80/20 mix.

I am probably an extreme case though.

Thanks guys, i guess i'll be stocking up on some meth while im at the shop. A 4 gallon fuel cell will definitely help but i'm going to talk with my tuner about running denatured alcohol should the need arise.

I am usually 3-4 weeks but if I am testing or having some fun I can go through a 1.5G tank in a day.

It's all about your right foot. I've used a WW tank of methanol in two days. Usually lasts two weeks for me though.

I haven't filled it since maybe September? I maybe dip into it for 3 or 4 seconds once or twice a week.

my old b7 was a 3 gallon setup and a track day or a run through the mountains would kill it in less than a day.

Correct. It is 6 liters or 1.575 gallons.
