      You do know that can run a mix of alcohol (not methanol) and water with a high h2O percentage to make it totally non-flammable. You can even run straight water like I've been doing for a years (only use some alcohol in the northeast winters to prevent freezing).

      Exactly.

      Think of this post as a psb. You are smarter because of it.

      dont scared of it... any more than you are'nt scared of putting gas into your fuel tank..
      understand it, treat it with respect, and if concerned over flammability choose the % mix as I have indicated that looks to not want to ignite from spark..

      Was at the store last night so I took some pics of the SLX (44% methanol content) denatured alcohol and the Green version (95% ethanol content). From now on, the Green is what I'll use.
