This company > https://www.classicfuelsolutions.co.uk/collections/frontpage  was selling race fuel at a bike meet at the Anglesey circuit.
I asked if it was legal for road use and though it isn't who'll know you're running it. Expensive though.

G'day Rocker.
starting at an eye-twitching £3.80 per litre. That's about $7.60 in my money *ex* Certainly wouldn't be doing any decent trips.
Good to hear you don't have to modify anything though. Running 100% E (methanol) in the A7SS gave me 11mpg  *eek*
Funny how E10 down here is a few cents cheaper than straight 91. Where as up there it'd dearer.
Our V8 Supercars run on E85 and talk of it going mainstream.
Cheers

That'll be £17.10 per gallon, or $34.20 to you Musky - reckon I'll find a way of sticking with the E numbers. *eek* *eek*

 Was it bergs who experimented with backyard alcohol extraction from E fuels? Plastic bottles, water and our old friend partition coefficient come to mind. Or am I dreaming?
