Water vs Methanol : Ultimate Tuning
Finally I got a map tuned with the right ignition timing and fuel mixture.
Now I would like some advice to have a good tune with a 50/50 mixture.
Question 1 :
Would water only or a 50/50 mixture need more ignition timing ?
Question 2 :
Methanol is fuel, so the map needs to be leaned out. By how much? is there a formula for this ?
Question 3 :
Water cools combustion more than methanol but if both injected there is a note that water nor methanol do not "see" each other thus mix more with air.
So what about Air Temps? Would using a 50/50 mixture gain cooler air temperatures but increased cylinder temperatures due to methanol burning?
There is no right answer, you will have to find out with dyno time.
