Ok.

It took me 5 days , but I have gotten ahold of ComAlc....

Anyhdrous , 100% un-denatured Ethanol is 140$ for 25 liters.So , about the same as Isopropanol , but Excluding taxes/duties.

I am in the process of examining the 'licensing' involved.(I need a license for 'un-denatured' , it determines the duty rate.).......

I am also looking to two different 'denatured' grades , as they are cheaper.

One is denatured with .5 % Toluene , one is 5% Naptha...both will work as far as I know , it's a case of materials compatability after that......

----------

So it looks like the thinktank 2.0 is still fully a go , with this liquid change !

I am looking into a 4 liter sample to do the baking pan test first....



edit :

I almost forgot.If anhydrous ethanol works ( and it should ) we can use liquid nitrogen to get to below -100 C ....... There's some hurdles before this , but it's worth mentioning.

Ok !!

I talked to my local gov't excise/duty rep ? today ..

We discussed the thinktank , and he said it should be no problem to get the required 'SDA licence' that I need to purchase/own/handle anhydrous denatured ethanol.

So thats a major step forward......I am in the process of sourcing out a couple liters of the products in question ......for a baking pan test.....

I've also gotta convince 'Commercial Alcohol' to sell me some specially pakaged ethanol.......they normally only sell the SDAG stuff in 55 gal drums......

Just buy a 55 gal drum and we'll make a go cart that runs on ethanol later.

BrainEater, if you get a liquid license, does that mean that "you'll be certifiable"? Best of luck to our favorite mad scientist!

You're probably on the gov's "Watch List" now...

I was on the watch lists a long time ago.They know I'm cool.

-----

I thought I should update this ;

I am waiting on licencing to get anhydrous ethanol.Hopefully soon.

This is a difficult product to obtain legally/cheaply....I have to go through the hoops.

-

I've done some wiring/plumbing work to clean things up, but I have no pics yet.
