Methanol vs Ethanol

OK guys, help me out. Ethanol is made from corn, while methanol is made from wood. Correct? What is racing alchohol, Etheyl or Metheyl? Which one will make more power?

Can they be interchanged without problems? Can they be mixed?

Is there anything that we should be aware of before intermixing?

Possibility of buying 220 gallons at auction for about $45 total.

Any help would be appreciated.

Eth or Meth?

Methanol is racing alcohol, it has a little more heat output than ethanol. Both will draw moisture real bad. Buy it from a respectable supplier or get it tested for specific gravity.
