i think it thins it, apparently it gave a little more oomph! thats what sailors used to do in the years when submarines/ships were powered by diesel!

hey I've been wondering this for awile now. Well I know some people use methonal (sp?) in their drag cars, and I was wondering what the octain rating on it was if there is one, and I was also wondering the benifits of alchohol over high-octain race gas.

and isn't alchohol bad for a carbureted gasoline engine? I heard that the plastic floats will soak up alchohol, and will not work properly.
