FYI....- 20 degree windshield washer fluid is 30% Methanol/70% Water...I sell it to all the Rental Car Agencies in my area.
Boost Juice is 49% Methanol/51% Water.
Straight Methanol is very dangerous - Very flammable stuff!
(I'm looking at a Snow kit for my Fusion Sport...Turbos love Meth Injection!)

I personally wouldn't trust any windshield washer fluid through my pumps / nozzles, some have lubes and additives that can build up and clog up the nozzles

And methanol is actually less flammable than gasoline, so I'm not too worried, the only scary thing about it to me is that it burns clear.

I will base my meth mixture on my iat, since I'll have about a mile of cold piping, including an intercooler, my iat should be fairly low, so I will most likely end up having to go around 80-100% meth for proper evaporation /cylinder dispersion

Ever see a fire on an F1 pit stop?...
Everyone acts like there is a swarm of invisible hornets around them.
You can't see a Methanol fire!

Per my above post;

"50% Meth/50%H2O is Windshield Washer Fluid.

100% Meth is - "Methanol (methyl alcohol) is a hazardous material, in the same flammability, toxicity and reactivity hazard classes as gasoline." - Art MacCarley, Ph.D., PE. , Professor of Engineering California Polytechnic State University.

There is a reason fuel tanks are where they are.".

Some dare devils will mount several gallons tanks of 100% Meth in their front fender, BURN BABY BURN.

50%/50% is NOT windshield washer fluid.

Sorry.....back to the thread.

From Snow;

9. What ratio of water/methanol is recommended?

• A 50/50 ratio is recommended. This has been demonstrated to be the best for charge/air cooling, excellent detonation control, and safety.

• Ratios of anywhere from 30% to 50% methanol work well and deliver excellent octane gains and cooling.

10. Can I use pure methanol?

While all components of Snow Performance systems are designed to be able to handle pure methanol, it is not recommended for a number of reasons.

• Safety: Pure methanol is easy to ignite witha low 140F degree flash-point and burns with an invisible flame.
• Performance: Water absorbs almost twice as much heat as methanol in the intake and inside the combustion chamber. Water cannot be flash-ignited, so has what is almost an infinite octane number. In the government studies for WWII piston-powered aircraft, 50/50 water-methanol was found to be the best fluid to use for auxiliary fluid injection.

Got it mounted pretty good, made some brackets, the vertical core blends in with the vertical grill. Super incognito.

Im going to have a ***** of a time routing the cold pipe to the throttle body, but I'll cross that bridge when I get there.
