It burns cleaner and won't load up at an idle.

Your engine will run much cooler.

Costs less than race gas.

Uses twice as much.

Do it, but you will need to ditch aluminum tanks and go stainless. Also, buy lots of oil, your going to be changing it a tad more often. Methanol make your motor oil turn milky.

Methanol:
The tuning window is larger. :))THumbsUp

The maintenance is a little bit of a pain. :))ThumbsDwn

Can be a little harder to get.

Bigger bang in the cylinder.:))THumbsUp

Usage is double.
