Default advantage of keeing fuel cool

any thought on keeping nitro in a cooler between quals/mains..?? i would think that it would help make the incoming charge a little more dense...???

I think it would do so little difference that you wouldnt notice it.

I know guys that keep their fuel bottles on ice, in a cooler on hot days..I can't see it being a bad idea really.

When the fuel is controled with a nitromax meter there is a chance the cold fuel could be messured as "to heavy"

keep in mind that when alcohol (or nitromethanol) evaporates, it causes water vapor to condense, contaminating the fuel. When the fuel is cooled, this adds to the problem. Think of a cold drink on a hot day.
