Default Mixing gasoline with methenol

What are the pros and cons of this, am going to run spark ignition on my super Tigre g90 and was wondering if it was possible and worth while to mix half gasoline with methenol with the right amount of lubrication ?

I don't thing they'll mix without a catalyst. Klotz may have made one. Could you get away with ethanol instead? It mixes with gas just fine in any ratio.

sorry for giving you bad/wrong info. Apparently it is not right and I have thought for years that methanol would only mix in tiny %. I thought that mixing close larger % would not stay mixxed. See below, Thanks for the correction, guys.

(now I have to go find my clear container)

Methanol and gas mix just fine. Some oils will not. Ask on the gas engine forum. Many are doing this with both spark and glow ignition.

Check this thread for running with gas/glow mix. They are using glow plugs for ignition but the fuel mix info will help you. There are also a couple of other threads in "Engine Conversions" that might be of interest.
