E85 with Water/Methanol kit Question

2636 Views 12 Replies 6 Participants Last post by  Himmelkat
I’ve looked online as well as this forum, but I’m having trouble finding much info using a water/methanol kit in conjunction with E85. Maybe for good reason…I’m just hoping someone that has knowledge and experience with this let me know whether or not it’s worth while. I do plan on tuning for the water/methanol kit, if that matters. Thank you!

If one is running E85, why not just mix the water with the fuel? It will surely dissolve entirely. It has the bonus of being able to lean out the mixture a bit, for less wasted fuel, and cooling the combustion process, allowing you to do exactly that (leaner mixture) without damage to the pistons, etc. Why not mix up a few small batches with progressive rates of dilution until you hit an ideal? The engines are tuned way too rich as it sits, due to time/distance/atomization limitations of the air column's interaction with the fuel injected.

This kills two birds with one stone. Leaner combustion, which is more efficient, substantially, as long as one is not hitting lean misfire, and cooling combustion that is usually too hot WHEN it is without a bunch of useless fuel to denature.

The ideal mixture, if there is one, would be easy enough to find. Is there a Water Tiger in your tank?
