i know you guys run this stuff all the time so i had a question

I keep hearing that this stuff is pretty aggresive when it comes to plastic and rubber parts

I dont know about your cars, but in my car the pump and stuff are plastic, lots of plastic pieces and rubber and stuff

Will this stuff kill my fuel pump and all that?

(Its a focus...with a turbo, lol)


Just wondering.

afaik Xylene and toluene are fine, most of the stuff you hear is exaggerated or in some cases entirley untrue. Methanol is what will fuck rubbers and plastics. I know someone who has been running toluene for over five years in a car that is almost 18 years old, and it is fine. My old man still runs it in his 911 turbo, again with no evidence of any problems unless we run at over 35%.. where the fuel it too hard to light up.

and just to add, Toluene AND Xylene are both regulary used in regular gasolenes.

just wanted to check

seee, older cars may handle it better actaully because the parts they use are more crude, heavy, and usually hard metal

these new cars man, all plastic

I just swaped my tank and pump out today, old design keeps having problems picking up, and its ALL plastic, pump, modules, lines rubber, everything is all plastic
