I am wondering where you guys are getting your methanol from. I cant think of anywhere in town (jacksonville) that carries it.

Yea, i just did some google research and made the same discovery. HEET is like 99% methanol while the ISO-HEET is isopropyl. I am going to price it around town, but walmart will probably be the cheapest, as they are for most products.

No it's the yellow bottle with blue letters on the left. Less than a buck at Walmart. Iso-Heet is on the right in red, but is not methanol.

I will find out where we got our last bit of Methanol from. We currently have a 5 gallon jug of 50/50 water/meth. mix here at the shop for our Aquamist installs. I will post up where we found it at.

It looks like heat is around $3-5 for just 16 ounces...i'd rather pay $3 for a whole gallon of strait meth. Do hardware stores carry it like ace hardware?

I use the yellow bottles of heet for my meth injection (tuned for it) In the Spring WalMart usually sells the stuff off super cheap, $.50 for a 4 pack which works out to ~$1.50/gal. Several months ago I bought 60+ 4packs and cleared out a few stores. It works!

I'll have to check my local super walmart. I was just guessing their price, I saw it online somewhere but it wasnt the walmart price. If I can get it for $1.50 a gallon that would be awesome. Perhaps I'll check tomorrow and post back with my findings.

Any local kart track, or fuel distributor sells the stuff in 5 gallon containers or by the drum. Take a look in the yellow pages.

My Wal-Mart has Heet normally priced at $.97, which is about $10 per gallon. The bottles are actually 12 ounce (not 16) I think. Much more than a race track, but they are very convenient.

The SLX brand of denatured alcohol is also very popular and can be somewhat cheap (like $10-$12 gal) . It contains 50% methanol and 50% ethanol (I found the MSDS http://www.wmbarr.com/msds/GSL26.pdf ).

Dang, im not looking forward to $10 a gallon, that is kinda steep. I think i'll be checking the phone book when I get home. I will also have to check my local walmart and see what the going rate is.

Well, it's not THAT bad. I am going to be running SLX denatured alcohol from Lowe's. I got it for $13/gal I think. I am going to be running a 50/50 mix with water. Figure my 1-gal tank will last 2-4 tanks of gas (depending on the tune and how I drive), that's 1 gallon every 6-8 tanks of gas. That's only like 1 gal per month, or longer. Not too bad.

I got 2 bottles of meth HEET, they were $0.97 a piece for 12 ounces. It mixed with the distilled water great. I am not going to use it for at least a couple days though.
