I usually run about 30% meth, but for the washer fluid depending on the freezing temp is how much meth it has it think. here is the ratio.

+20 - 7% methanol

0 - 23% methanol

-10 - 28% methanol

-20 - 35% methanol

-25 - 38% methanol

-50 - 62% methanol

So let me make sure i understand this. If i run the -10 or the -20 i dont have to add any meth to it. Its already mixed for me?

I buy the walmart brand -20 and mix it with three cans of heat per gallon of windshield fluid and that nets almost exactly 50/50 mix which is the max I know of that the manufactures of every major kit will recommend.

I have a 2 10 gallon reserves for mine. I fill them both up before a long trip when I am towing. You should see the funny looks you get at walmart when you are buying 10 gallons of windshield washer fluid and 30 cans of heat. I think I may have made the terrorist watch list on a couple occasions. :doh:

I use a 50/50 mix of de-natured alcohol and distilled water which are both readily available at any Walmart should you ever run out. I should mention this is in my Legacy GT Turbo, not my truck. It costs about $20 for 2 gallons which lasts nearly a month.

It might be putting too much, mine puts 15% injection at 15 pounds of boost.

I'm not gonna lie. I have no idea how meth effects a diesel engine. I know that my 800ml nozzle sprays at nearly 78% when I hit max boost in the LGT. Every once in a while I'll conduct a test spray with the car being stationary and no matter how hot the engine is, my intake manifold will be cool if not nearly cold to the touch from the water/alcohol mix sprayig into it. That's badass.

I think it is injecting too early. It should be around 20 psi when there is alot of air flow. If I understand what you are saying once you hit 10 psi it comes on at 100% injection. I am assuming you dont have a progressive controller. It shouldnt be injecting too much because i am running two 625ml nozzles.
