Default Would beer work?

Hey guys, just for ***** and giggles, would beer work in a WI system? My neighbor uses it on his food, his lawn, and drinks too much of it. He is convinced it's the next duct tape remedy for everything. I figure if I start pouring the stuff in my WI tank (much like Doc in back to the future), he'll go nuts and think I've developed an alternate fuel using his remedy....that and it would make good party conversation.

I don't see why not. The yeast/hopps might smell like **** when it burns though so run some horse **** like Natty Lite.

Some one needs to develope a beer injection system, just not while your driving i could imagine the number of DUI's that would result from a beer injection system either into the intake or the driver, passenger etc. Vodka might work though or everclear.

As long as they use a light pilsner lager I'm OK with it. Gotta get rid of that crap somehow.

Why don't you try it with some cheap vodka or something, it's 80 proof so there's plenty alcohol in it. Taaka vodka comes in a plastic handle and it's only 8$.

No need for a pump on a beer system. Just get on the gas, car shakes around a bit, and the beer pressurizes itself!

You can buy alcohol in gallon jugs at the hardware store for cheap.... a lot cheaper than beer.
