I need ethanol for my WI later on when it is finished. (http://www.aquamist.co.uk/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?t=1292)

I found 5L can 96%+5% methanol but I am not sure if I can use this for my system, the main purpose of the ethanol is to keep water not freezing and the mixture will be 80% water and 20% Ethanol.

But since Ethanol is different kind alcohol than Methanol I want to be sure before I buy something.

This is the scan of the bottle tag:

It appears to be simple denatured ethanol alcohol, 96% plus 5% methanol as a denaturant. (not sure of their math skills but??)

As long as your not going to drink it your good to go. Methanol and ethanol are interchangable for water injection systems unless the pumps and such do not like one or the other. As far as an injectant they work equally well.
