Default Which windsheild fluid ?

i'm planning to use WW fluid for my coolingmist just because it's cheaper and easier.. but i went to Kregan and AutoZone, most of the WW fluid dont have the formula on the bottle, so i have no idea what's in there...
So is there a certain brand that i can use that's been tested and i can find in Kregan or Autozone ??? they have blue, pink, green all different ones...

with pictures would be great, thankx alot.

I ran the cheap blue -20 stuff for a while. I think you want the cheapest stuff possible

methanol is poisonous so there should be warning labels on the bottle.

You can buy ALKY for 9.99 and distilled water for a buck........ Unless your really hard up for cash, i would just put something in your car that you know is good.

i figured that if alky is $10, mix with 50/50 , that's like 4-5 times more than windshield fluid...

I let my washer fluid age in a titanium tank for 8 months in a temperature controlled cellar to allow the free radicals and oxidation molecules to reach their proper half life thresholds. That way the net weight wetbulb ratio is reduced my 40%. The same technique is done with all my fluids. Overall your car will have a 15% curb weight savings.
Oh, sorry... this method will only work for JDM type RA, spec C group N cars built on a Monday of every other leap year.

i can get meth for $5 gallon and at a 50/50 mix it is $3.00 gallon if that so wouldnt use WW fluid it just doesn't seem worth it for the little bit of savings

This is the first legitimately funny post I've read on NASIOC.

So what brand is it? I considered running WWF, but I have a local source of race meth for about $2.50 a gallon. I buy distilled water by the case at Walmart for something like $0.50 a gallon.

The only reason I would doubt running WWF is that it may contain detergent, which I prefer not to inject into my cylinders. I do't want to wash down my bores. While this is probably not a huge problem, you never really know, especially when you are running something that you have NO CLUE what is actually in the container.....

Does anyone know the concentration of alcohol in Peak? It's the +32 stuff, so there can't be that high of a concentration.

I really hate to dispute you findings, but I believe you will get incomplete ionization without a pink pig on both side windows. Sorry, but check the books.
