The results surprised me and is the reason I won't be putting that stuff in any fuel tank regardless of what the mechainc does. 67% water, 33% alcohol. Now how does that keep from freezing? Let's ask Saddletramp. Does he freeze when it gets cold outside?


That's why I said "Don't do it". I didn't mean to imply you would use it, just that I KNOW that it has a high water content.

Did you know that straight anti-freeze will freeze much faster than a mix of 60% water/40% anti-freeze?
