Default Running on alcohol?

Does anyone have any experience converting a 929 to run on alcohol?

Default RE: Running on alcohol?

This is what i know about alcohol- 1. it likes more timing. 2. compression. ratio around 14 to 16 to 1. 3. Engines require about 30 to 40 percent more fuel delivery than a gas engine. Does anyone make a conversion kit?

45mpg isn't enough for you? why would you want to run alcohol?

alcohol will eat up fuel lines ,if not fuel injection -floaters in a carb,unless OEM parts made to handle it, and yes you need lots more fuel pushing to the motor then, but for the old saying by the big dog's

GAS- is for cleaning parts
ALCOHOL- is for drinking
AND
NITRO - is for racing
