How are you going to meter in the extra fuel on demand with a tractor without a fuel pump?
Re-jetting to run E-85 will make almost as much extra power as a nitro mix. With much less time, expense or risk.

i guess top fuel should look into e 85 then its alot cheaper than nitro at 40.00 a gallon. ill buy the nitro if youll bring a e 85 motor to the dyno and she will make more on nitro . Its simple mathematics on btus per pound .

Im sure its possible to get a good gain from it, but my question would be,, is it safe? Could I put the stuff in the tank, haul it to the pull, and be ok with it being in the tank out in the open sunlight and not explode from the heat? Or is it more of keeping it shaded and cool and pour it in right before the run, then drain it back out when Im finished? Chad

I have one queation for you. How in the world are you gonna light nitro methane off. Especially at 100%. I think you may be stretching that one just a tad. YOU BET! thats to funny!

So tell me, if you really did run this engine on 100% nitromethane, how did your eyes feel after you started the engine?

Nitrous will add power to any engine, but it must be respected. You can run your B real rich and meter in a slight amount and probably gain 10-15 hp, but to do it right, you need to add the proper amount of fuel with the nitrous by using a fogger nozzle and an electric fuel pump. I have no experience with nitrous on a tractor, but have used it a lot on drag cars. I always used a conservative approach, and never had any problems with it. With a very slow turning small two cylinder, a little will go a long way, so be carefull. And no, E85 won't help a bit unless you have a bunch of compression and a lot of spark advance.

flaspoint is 110 degrees. much higher than gas or alcohol. its like any other chemical the safest way to handle it is to be familiar with its caracteristics.

85% nitro/15% methanol will make more power than E-85.
As for being practical? For all the difference and the problems with nitro, stick with E-85. Get the E85 metered corectly and making frost on the intake manifold. The colder denser mixture will gain some HP. More delta T during the combustion/expansion cycle too.

you light it with spark plugs then when the heat in the engine builds it burns the electrodes off and diesels down the track just like it does in a fueler .funny man ha ha .dont ever try it its more addictive than drugs just purchased 200 dollars worth today. it also doesnt matter the percentage it is the horsepower gains are equal to the percentages. it removes paint rather easy also.
