Water...you can use tap, spring or distilled.
Meth...you can use window washer fluid with no soap, straight Meth, or air brake conditioner (it's basically just methanol)

Ratio...30% meth is a good safe start and will keep your system from freezing in the winter. You can go up to 50% or more meth as long as you have your tunes adjusted for the timing the methanol advances. Remember it's a fuel so you need to adjust your tunes likewise.

You can get bottles of HEET, its pure methanol. Its cheaper to just buy like 5 gallons from a race shop.

Just go to a shop that sells straight methanol. Then you know exactly what you are running. Max 30%...

I normally use tap water, but when I can, I use distilled water.

The place I got it for wasn't like a race shop, rather a special supply store that carried all the different fuels and chemicals... might try glancing over the yellow pages in your area??
