You will wonder why you didn't change over sooner after you start using it. JMHO

I am looking forward to it. All I have left is getting the headers I can see the light at the end of the tunnel

Pretty serious price difference between GA and AZ. I pay $102 a drum for methanol..

You will be happy with the switch. Are you going with injection or carb?

I will check and see the price for a drum. The only place I know to buy methanol is a gocart shop in the next town over. I will be running a carb Quickfuel 850 for now.,

If you know anyone who can get it for you, we run industrial methanol. Exact same thing without the fancy sticker on the drum.

I will, that is the price I got from a go cart place. I will see if they sell it by the barrel or just by the gallon.
