Default Cheap methanol in north San Diego county

So I finally took the list's advice and started looking at suppliers of racing fuel. Turns out that a local shop I've been buying parts from recently is a VP Fuel distributor. VW Paradise in San Marcos, CA has VP brand M1 (99.95%) Methanol for $4.99 a gallon. That's less than half of what Heet costs, and actually somewhat cheaper than washer fluid as well. When I was in Reno, NV last month I noted that -20 washer fluid (~33%) was over $2 per gallon, or nearly $7 per gallon by meth content.

Needless to say I bought 5 gallons from them, along with a snazzy fuel jug to keep it in. Now all I need is some blue food coloring.

That's mad funny. Do you have a clever idea for disguising the rest of the system (pump, hoses, nozzle)?

Hehehehe. No, in fact since I just did my emissions test today the whole system is removed from the car, along with the intercooler, the dash-mounted computer, etc. I've been re-installing things all day- just got the electronics back in, along with most of the plumbing and the BOV. Still have to do the WI system and the MBC.
