Where do you guys think i could buy a couple of gallons of this stuff. Im trying to pas smog.
I called and asked if they carried it, and they said no.
try any home improvement store, or even a grocery store.
yea, i found it at lowes. thanx for the replies.
Weird. The last time I had to buy some, my local Home Depot had it... maybe things have changed.
I just bought 2 gallons a few weeks again,
S-L-X Denatured Alcohol. but if lowes had it
that's all that matters.
I am lost, what does denatured alcohol and passing smog have to do with each other?
Doesn't it dilute your gas so that it burns it more efficiently? I'm probably wrong. That'd be my guess though.
i'm guessing it burns clean?
Also your local paint store will carry it.
thats it! i got it at Lowes
CRX, did you buy it for smog? How did it turn out?
yes I've used it to pass am emissions check, it's a very clean burning feul, the only problem is it burns so clean you need to add some regular petrol to it or the emissions people will make you come back for a retest becasue there's no way a gas powered car could burn feul so clean, so you need to give there system some kind of emissions to read.
so you need to make a 2:1 mix of denatured alcohol to gas.
dont ya mean 1:2 denatured alcohol to gas...
meaning 1 part alcohol; 2 parts gas.
nope 2 parts alcohol 1 part gas. you want a 66% of the mix to be alcohol.
is it ok for you engine to run on that?
yea, that does seem kind of high.
why don't we just use that instead of gas then???? if it's more efficient??
doesn't it burn hotter?
