Everything I read says gas only, for carter pumps. Just wondering if anyone has run one on alcohol with any success?

I would say No. Gas pumps for the most part don't make enough pressure or volume for Alcohol, plus the rubber in the gas pumps are not compatible with alcohol. I tried a carter gas pump when I was starting out. It lasted about 1/4 season on a dinky motor before it gave up and started leaking. It's not worth it to burn up a motor. I may be wrong, as I usually am, but I know I wouldn't do it again.
