I guess alky is good for heat and maybe some consistency in the hot summer BUT tear that baby down and its hell on parts.

Besides there is no way alky has the nice big moan that a gas engine has. Alky is slap,slap, slap.

The Q is some putrid sh$t. When your around it enough you start to hate the smell even more.

I know if you leave food like bread, chips and such in the trailer overnight w Q in the cell, the stuff will taste like Q. M5 has a twang in raw form, but your burn it and look the f out lol. I was hated w a vengeance when I ran it last year.

You just have to be careful with the Q on the hose. Many a headgasket have fallen victim to its charms...but when it's right, it's a thing of beauty.

Ok, my 2 cents, limited knowledge, this is just what I have observed...
My buddy was running an iron CJ headed 500" in his dragster running in Medicine Hat at 2300 feet, usually around 5000 feet corrected. The car ran 8.60's. He switched to alky running a toilet, and the car dropped to 8.30's. I've sat in the car and warmed it for him on both gas and alky, and it felt much crisper with the alky when blipping the throttle. Possibily the tune up was wrong on gas, it's possible, he doesn't know a bunch about tuning and usually gets help with it, maybe his alky tuner was better.
2nd buddy was dynoing his 655" Indy BBD. It made a best of 1125 hp on alky with 2 toilets, we swapped fuel systems, put on 2 whiz bang domimies and pulled 1145 on C16. Can't remember the tq numbers, but it was slightly higher with the alky. It seems that after the bore gets to a certain size, gas starts making more power.
Av gas is the best smelling fuel, don't even try to argue with me on this one... tongue
