Say pump gas with a 25 percent mix of methanol? Just curious.
Using around 20% methanol in the fuel tank is pretty common here in the UK. It helps pump fuel, and doesnt push the fuel system too hard in terms of extra flow needed.

but obviously as it will be tuned to expect this at all times....you need to run that same mix at all times.

Their test seems wanting, to say the least.

I found this test, seems to be a better controlled test...

Full range gains with no tune change, just add the meth/water spray and off they went.

You guys use a stoich of about 13 for 20 percent meth mixed with pump? I use 10.7 with E70 or 11.8 with E50 and works pretty well with no other changes.

I wonder if they had a progressive controller or just sprayed it with no control down low. That would definitely kill power in the lower and mid range I would think!
