Default Nitromethane experiences?

I am very interested in anyone's experience with h2o/methanol vs. h2o/methanol/nitromethane mixes.

Snow Performance sells a nitromethane product that you put in your reservoir tank:

anyone had any experiences with this product and would care to comment on it?

Thanks,

I think it said 8 oz for a 2 qt reservoir of water/methanol, so 2 qt minus 8 oz of 50/50 water/meth. Their product may have an emulsifier to help with keeping it in solution.

This following thread has all the experimental mixture.

Why not just inject 80N/20M?

Default Nitromethane injection.

I have used a 40/60 and 25/75 nitromethane/methanol mix with very good results, the nitro in the mixture injection leans the A/F as compared to straight methanol. The power increase is easily felt on a supercharged or turbocharged car. Nitromethane is not good for spark plugs (short term) or internal engine components (over long term).

Every time I have added water to a mix of nitromethane and methanol the nitro winds up on the bottom of the container, I have not been able to find anything to keep the nitro suspended even overnight.

Snow Performance has a small 4 oz bottle of a "Nitro-Booster", meant to add to a 2 gallon tank of "Boost-Juice", but that did not have anywhere near the same effects as a straight 40/60 nitromethane/methanol.

Note: straight methanol, or methanol/nitromethane mix is highly flammable, and methanol burns with a colorless flame. (invisible)
Nitromethane will corrode the plastic lines and some metal fitting of water methanol kits.
Do not use straight methanol or nitromethane without properly qualified stainless lines. (and no leaks!)
