Where to by Methanol in Oregon?
Posted 06 May 2009 - 12:14 AM
So, I am hoping someone on here can point me somewhere that I can more easily get this stuff, and hopefully for closer to half the price I have been seeing.
I really want to run alky, but if this is the price I have to pay, I will have to rethink it.
Thanks in advance for any advice...

That is what I thought, but he confirmed it was Methanol... doesn't make sense that in Michigan they can get this stuff for less than $4 per gallon, but he has no reason to make it up.

It is Methanol, and it comes in two forms. One is standard, and the other is high-filtered. The guy says that he sells the standard to a bunch of racers, couple of drag strips, etc., so it should work fine.
If you buy it by the 55 gallon drum, it is about $3/gallon, + the deposit on the barrel, environmental fee, etc., so about $200 for the whole 55 gallons... sweet! The high filtered stuff is $6.50 per gallon, so a huge difference in price.
The place is Tarr, LLC, in Portland, their number is 503-288-5294. If you have a business, you can apply for an account and get shipping to your business, or as a joe public customer, just go down and pick it up.
Hope this helps anyone looking for affordable Methanol.

if you have never run methanol before, something to remember is you will go through a lot more methanol than you will gas. So if your day of riding typically consumes 10 gal of fuel you may need up to 20 on methanol.
