Default Methanol tech grade and marine grade - 12-31-2016, 02:06 PM

Been running the VP M1 methanol for the last 2 to 3 years perfectly but recently due to some new regulation on import and all those stories there is limited stock and all over The city I couldn't find a single M1 gallon and the answer it will be available after 1 or 2 months.

I made some search and found chemical labs and factories sells methanol called tech grade and marine grade, as per the MSD it's pure 99.98%

Is this surve same as the M1 VPracing methanol or there is difference between VP and pure methanol from chemical suppliers?

If it's the same then I'm lucky as its way cheaper for me and widely available and delivered to my door step.

Any one can advise on this?

Here is some data from the lab https://imgur.com/gallery/ZUwAV
