Brad Penn and E-85= bad mix?

Post  J.Toney on May 21st 2013, 9:19 am

Going E-85 and was thinking of swapping from RP 10w-40 to Penn Grade of same weight, until I read this bulliten. Has anyone else used BP oil with issue in an ethanol deal? Wouldn't methanol cause similar problems? http://www.penngrade1.com/CMSFiles/File/March%202011_E85_TECH_LETTER_BRAD_PENN.pdf

No. They are totally different fuels.

1.Ethanol and methanol are liquids that sound the same and have many of the same physical characteristics including look and smell.

2.Ethanol is safe to consume in moderate amounts and is found in all alcoholic beverages whereas methanol should be avoided at all costs as even a small dose can cause blindness or death.

3.Ethanol is used for alcohol, cleaning, solvents, and fuels, and while methanol is also found in solvents and fuels, it is primarily used to make other chemicals.
