CH4O = Methanol
Complete Combustion
CH4O + O2 + N2 = CO2 + H2O + N2
AF = 6.4 Parts Air for each Part of Fuel
136% More methanol is burned compared to gasoline per volume of air.

* Produces higher BTUs per pound of air.
* It is a safer fuel to handle due to the high heat of vaporization.
* High octane rating usually over 100.

* Must be kept sealed or it will absorb water.
* Must flush the engine to prevent metal deterioration.
* The flame produced from burning is not visible in daylight.
* The carburetor needs to be calibrated.
* Must change oil often to prevent alcohol accumulation.
