The ALKY additive is designed to increase lubrication of valve trains for methanol and ethanol powered cars. It reduces the corrosiveness of methanol and ethanol and in addition will reduce bore wash.
ALKY causes methanol to burn with a yellow-tipped flame, instead of a colourless flame if untreated. MSA race series now mandate the use of such an additive for safety reasons if using methanol.
One bottle of Alky (222ml) will treat a 205 L drum of methanol
