I have just received 5 litre of pure Nitromethane form G-max.

Here is a couple of pictures of it.

First of all, I need to find a way to dissolve the stuff in water.

And then do some long term compatibility test with our pump seals. Teflon is the seal I will try first.

I don't have a turbo car, I will try it on my daily driver - Citroen Picasso.

Default Nitromethane

I am planning on making up a 50/40/10 methanol/water/Nitromethane mix, the nitromethane can dissolve in the methanol, reading here it seems that up to 10% by volume can be used with out having to worry about a/f ratios.

This will be some time early summer, as I don't have the money for a separate remap for this, but I will map with 50/50 Methanol/water first of all on the rollers, then put in the above mix and then run her again. I am concerned that it may affect detonation which is why I want to do it this way,.. to be safe!
If there are noticeable gains, then I will try stronger concentrations

Judging from this label, nitromethane sure looks like the Devil's brew :lol:

I wonder if it reacts with plastics, aluminium, brass fittings, etc. Nasty piece of work it is... :shock:

Had a bit of time today to play...

First I put a few drop on a metal plinth, hit lightly with a hammer, nothing much happen. Hitting harder and hard, just can't ignite it.

The next test: put a few drop under a 40-ton fly-press. Again failed to make it ignite when struck.

Mixed 33/33/33 M/W/N but the couldn't dissolve all the nitro, see picture below:



I then put two drops of washing up liquid, shoke it a bit, went milky within a few seconds-appeared to have emulsified. Left it overnight, Shall have the answer tomorrow.

Washing up liquid eh?

Fairy any good?

If this keeps it suspended, I'd be tempted to try it myself.
But it will need a special tank I suppose, can't use the windscreen wiper bottle eh?

Thanks Richard for the lab class.

It would be interesting to see if the 50-40-10 mixture Water-Methanol-Nitro mix actualy works and does not seperate out.

The solution has separated but appeared less nitromethane was left at the bottom - washing up liquid seemed to have made the nitromethane more soluable in water/methanol.
