Been thinking about this for a long time. Has anyone ever done this? please chime in with your experience. I've done e-85, but seriously thinking of methanol on this next build. Supercharged 408 with nitrous assistance. TIA! 8-)

I hope you have some large injectors big lines huge pumps and a massive tank with a wallet to suit for fuel

meth requirements are about double that of pump gas

let me know when you go ahead with it

I crew on a screw blown brad, 521 inches. It burns 5 gallons a pass, with burn out, in the 8th mile at 200mph. I do understand the volume needed. I have a stock tank, with sump. should i just make the swap to a mechanical pump, or is there a electric pump that is up to the task? With the mechanical volume will increase with rpm. with the electrical, it's only going to produce what it's allowed at the given voltage, so i know bigger injectors will be a must, but I'm thinking mechanical pump @ 100 psi rail pressure will give me some injector back.

yeah I don't know of many electric pumps that will support that much fuel flow at that pressure, mechanical would probably be your only bet
