I got word the military bought a bunch of methanol to use for transporting explosives. I don't fully understand how they were using it , but supposedly to keep the moisture out of their explosives.

Makes me wonder how fast a 598 pump gas motor might be? Also makes me wonder if my brain can take parking everything. Everything is going up except my paycheck :?

Dang hate to hear that about methonal I use it to make Biodiesel and will be needing another drum in short order.

Also making me rethink using Hi comp engines might have to consider just how much I could do with a pump gas 572.
