    From my experience, methanol does not burn up pistons because that would mean deterioration from the middle. Instead, what I found was that there was more side wear from methanol fuel, especially near the top of the piston. To me that would indicate that methanol was breaking down lubricants more quickly?

    Methanol or Ethanol? One thing Ethanol does is eat away all the plastic components of the engine.

    Try adding nitro to methanol and see what happens..


    I found out mostly to lean, jets wrong in the carb.


    This is an interesting discussion ( but I am kind of breaking the rules here)



    Burned piston in Alky engine - Speed Talk



    It's not a problem with the engine, it's a problem with the fuel system that needs to be found or it'll do it again.

    I had a customer burn about 6 pistons in a methanol engine after about 4 laps of the 1st race after I rebuilt the engine. We went through the fuel system and found SAND in the fuel pump! It had coarse brown sand in there and it was holding some but not all of the valves in the pump open. This caused the fuel volume to just not be adequate. Of course it didn't just quit pumping all together and quit running. No, it instead simply leaned out and damaged the engine!

    Not much I think? I think it is just cold pressed from the seeds?

    Since it is becoming legal to grow in the US I was thinking about at least 5 acres worth for a little experimenting on uses and processing.

    But there is a lot to learn since there is cold pressed hemp seed oil which contains no THC, cannabis oil that is an extraction turned into an infusion, with lots of THC, and CBD oil which is extracted from hemp flowers, has no THC, and is turned into an infusion.

    And it is still less efficient than just running regular diesel. That's the point. When you have to use fuel to make fuel, you are ALWAYS going to be chasing your tail.

    Hemp produces 511 gallons of oil per acre. You do the calculations.

    More Lies! - US Oil Imports are RISING because US burns more oil while extracting more oil! We are now MORE dependent on foreign oil!
