Thumbs up Re: Nozzle spray angle...

Yes, the original delivery is being returned and will be replaced by a fresh
delivery in a new (unused) container. I shall test a sample before mixing any
for my spraying system. I shall also rinse my spray tank with pure methanol
as you suggest, to remove any residue remaining from the contaminated mix.

The car was not driven or the pump activated while the contaminated mix
was in the tank. I removed the tank and washed it thoroughly with water
after dumping the contents. So I think the system will be OK.
