Bad idea.can i just use gas line antifreeze, with the isopropyl in it?[/b]
?? I think he means that he wants to buy the gasline antifreeze that is isopropyl based instead of methyl hydrate based. He should have no problems doing that. It says right on the bottle whether it has methyl hydrate or isopropyl on it.Bad idea.
Regular gas line antifreeze has methyl hydrate which doesn't act in the way isopropyl does. Doesn't mix with the gas mixture the same way, hence when it starts to get burned you're burning pure methyl hydrate, with no oil for lubrication. Does bad things to a two stroke.[/b]
Be careful with the purity of the stuff you're getting from animal clinics/autobody shops. You can get it through Anachemia Science or Fisher Scientific. Lab grade is 98 or 99% certified. Lower grades could be 5-10% water and other crap. Although I'm not sure if it would really matter...[/b]
Ha, I only run the good stuff!Not sure if it would matter! Dave has volunteered to see what will happen if you put "water and other crap" through the fuel system on a sled. Report back with your finidngs Dave, LOL[/b]
