I run meth in my Z and this is what i know from my experiences. There are commonly two types of methanol i see when i purchase it from race shops. M1 and M3 are the coomon types i see. I know that M3 normally has more oil content than m1. I will call my engine builder and get his take real qick for you.

Yes you can mix oil in with methanol but not all oils will mix. Castor oil or synthetics designed for methanol are best. Some methanol comes with a small amount of oil already mixed in. I know World Wide Racing Fuel sells a a methanol that's blue because of the oil in it.
