Sweet....then figger out how to attach a reflux colum to your keg boiler kettle...
you are set for a 5 gallon run off....  ;)

Of course, you will want to keep it up at 100% realm so you can put it in
the GAS TANK of the family stationwagon.

Diluting it with water.....makes bad things happen to the engine.

I think the straight firewater would fubar your engine. Just speaking from starter fluid and small engine experiences.
I'd totally go greasecar before I would distill for my vehicle. I love the smell of french fries in the morning!  ;D

Yeah, nobody told me. A less secure man might've inferred something from that. Or a smarter one.

They have some nice looking gear. I like the mr distiller. Maybe just a gimmick but pretty cool.

Im still thinking about the $2 crock pot still.
