Arrow 50/50 Meth & Water mix

Can anybody confirm what the correct mixture would be by volume? From what I have gathered:

4,400g of water and 2,471g of meth

This would equal to 6.8L which is the size of the AA meth tank.

Volume not mass.

So 3.4L of Water to 3.4L of Methanol

The specific gravity of Methanol is alot lighter as you have calculated

That will be a 50:50 ratio so yes that is what you want...anything more or less and it wouldn't be

The preferred method of mixing 50/50 is by weight not volume. I believe Meth has less weight than water. I need to verify

50/50 Meth & Water mix

Meth = 1.73 lbs or 27.8 grams per
litre

Water = 2.2 lbs or 35.2 grams per litre

I have been mixing my meth with water by volume poring in equal amounts. Which tells me I'm really running around 56% water to 44% meth by weight... Which is close to the recommended range for best performance 50/50. To me I want it non-flammable.

clarification Question:

when we say "water" in terms of talking bout mixing 50/50 w/ meth were talking about distilled water right? NOT TAP water

They say to use distilled water. I believe that's only to have no impurities ( minerals ) that could build up in the system and has no other effect from what I have found. Also I found the proper mix "works out to be a 1.3 : 1 (meth:water by volume) for a true 50/50" blend.
