    The track opens next month! Found this too....

    Seems like a good price for methanol, but I would need to know shipping to know for sure.
    I wonder if methanol has a shelf life?

    CHEAP methanol!

    I was looking around and found a 55 gallon drum of methanol on ebay. I made a post about it, but I guess it got deleted since I don't know where to post this kind of stuff. So anyway. 55 gallons is $175! With FREE residential delivery -at least it is to my zip, which is 500 or so miles away. pretty sweet deal if you ask me.

    Okay... so I also got an email with a shipping quote of $115. Hmmmmm It looks like free shipping. Ah who knows. $290 for 55 gallons is still pretty good!

    probably, call them on monday. you may have to order it through a speedshop, but even with their profit, it should break even and with none of the worry

    55 gallons?
    Holy $#@!.
    That woyld last you a lifetime, or make you a supplier for some time...
    I am surprised you can just buy this in such quantities.
    There are two theories to arguing with women. Neither one works

    Might wanna be careful buying that much at a time. Methanol decomposes when exposed to water. And everytime you open the container and pour it out you introduce more air and water vapor in. I would buy it and divide it up into smaller little containers and keep them sealed.
    Some people live long, meaningful lives.

    Other people eat shit and die.

    I'm not racist, I hate everybody equally; especially fat people.

    Yeah, well, I was drunk....and couldn't find the original post. Sorry 'bout that! I thought the post was deleted, but I was too dumb to find it. I think I'll just stick to the 5 gallon jugs, like a sane person.

    That excuse is more than legitimate on this site.

    I'll merge them.

    Reposting your own thread on the same day hours apart has to be some kind of record though.
