I know this has been asked before, but any help would be good. I am wanting know were I can buy some of the stuff that makes the alcohol fumes a litlle more tolerable.

I remember ready on here about some stuff that was grape or cherry scented.

Does it work and if so where can I get it? Also has it affected the engines performance ?
Thanks so much

I think most places that sell race stuff have it, but the biggest selection of scents that I saw were from Jegs.

The bannana smells good, but isn't very strong. However it seems like it makes the methanol so that you don't smell it very much either. They make cinnamon too, but I haven't tried it. The grape seems to be the best, strongest smelling.

The scents go back to the Jolly Rancher candy exhibition drag vehicles and wheel standers of the 70's. They used a patennted method of actually injecting their raw mixture into the headers to really fill the air with the aroma ~ ~ ~ ~. This was an obvious crowd pleaser as the wheel standing fire truck they had, used to fill the air with cinnamon when it made a pass. Then you could go by the pits and get free candy, personally that was better than smelling it to me.

The scents of today cost around 10-15 bucks a bottle, and a bottle will treat 55 gals of alky or 20 gals of gasoline. They are a great deal softer in scent but does take a bit of the harshness away from the alky. They are colored in the container but turn clear in alky, and seem to have no effect on performance.

Not being a cinnamon kinda guy I use the tropical punch scent in my alky injected street/strip car more for novelty, and to mask the smell of daquiris being mixed in my pit area...LOL
