You can make it your self. A older guy showed and told me the steps years ago but did not really pay attention to how he did it. I see what I can find out.

If you don't know what your doing it is not a good idea to do it this guy had done it for a LHS for a while. He had the stuff to make fuel in 55 gallon drums and I don't think its safe to have in a garge for too long.

Not a good idea, but I have seen people adding nitro as many manufacturers cheat with the nitro content.

Maybe the O.P is very sensible, will follow the MSDS's and storage requirements exactly and has handled chemicals before.

I would also be interested to know how to do it.... not because I want to make fuel, but rather because I think it would be easy!! I wanna know what the fuss is about... if you measure your 4 ingredients properly and add the smaller ingredients to the methanol and then shake it then it will be perfect right? (ie; they are all easily soluble)
