Thanks for the info Richard! Im trying to stay away from Methanol due to the health risks so trying to find a safer alternative.

Just to confirm, any level of ethanol is safe for use in the HSF3? (including the pump?) Its just a matter of the denature added? (usually methanol from what I can see)
ie. 50% methylated spirit (95-98% ethanol & 5-2% methanol) : 50% Water

Thanks again

edit: Stumbled across this;
Thats the closest I can get without requiring any licenses lol
Hopefully they dont charge too much :x
