Been thinking for a while about methanol fuel mixtures
Have been thinking for a while about mixing methanol with petrol in the fuel tank at a set mixture say 10% meth 90% petrol am after opinions thoughts etc especially the badger as he'll be mapping
We all know the gains to be had with regards to timing advance with WMi but also it's not advisable to tune for it as only takes a component failure or blockage on your WMi system and engine will det and get nuked....so have been thinking what if you could have the extra timing advance all the time knowing that the meth will be there the whole time your fuel systems running?
Thoughts are (this is where the badgers wisdom comes in as is above my head) can you also have different timing and possibly fueling maps as well as the boost maps? Thoughts would be to have 2/3 maps (if it all is possible) mapped with the desired meth mixture and the remaining on various boost levels for straight petrol?
Hoping the gains will be pretty significant with obviously more timing and boost being able to run with lower egt levels obviously all making for a nice recipe for more power
If we had ethanol and E85 regularly available over here I would be all over it like a bad rash as really want to help save the planet ;) Although as that's not readily available wondered if the meth petrol mix was an option?
It would be easier now being less dependent on the car, it's not such an issue to on long journeys (mainly to car meets and track events) to carry some meth in the boot with a funnel and hose, then when comes to filling up just put say 5 litres of meth followed by 50 litres of petrol
Only other thing is I haven't researched it at all so may be shot down instantly due to fuels not mixing and separating in the tank or something stupid but just thought I'd throw it out there? :)
