methanol injection?

Instead of us boost juice can't you use wind shield wiper fluid with no de-icer?

pretty sure I have seen reference to people buying the walmart brand of windshield washer fluid, etc. Even mixing it. will be good to know for sure, pricing out some kits myself.

Yes you can, make sure its a winter mix with meth. other wise its just windshield washer fluid in your cac tubes etc. I stick with the boost juice cause I know it works and is a good mix, even though I throw in some xtra water anyways.

Or get a drum of 99.99% methanol and cut it 50 / 50 by weight. It is cheaper to blend it yourself!

You can run straight water, a methanol water mix, washer fluid (with no cleaners...Rain-X), or boost juice.

from the mouth of matt @ snow in a bind you can take 1 gallon of blue -30 degrees windshield washer fluid to 1 or 2 pints i forget of HEET yellow container will give you a 50/50 mix meth to h20. I plan on running methanol and distilled water.

If you're going to use washer fluid you WANT the stuff with the de-icer. The de-icer IS methanol.

Also, one of the HEETs is pure methanol. I can't remember which is which (red or yellow) but one is isopropyl alcohol...the one that says iso-heet, and the other is methanol.

The Yellow is the Methanol. Expensive tho....
