    You can run it but why? It is more expensive and has slightly less octane I believe.

    Yes it's fine, you can run 100 percent denatured if you want... Shouldn't have any issues

    He means using the meth as a fuel source to supplement the fuel system. You can make more power using meth in this way to supplement a maxed fuel system but it can be dangerous.

    I think he meant just using sprayed in instead of meth, at least that is what I gathered.

    Yes, that's what I meant. Denatured alcohol has other stuff in there like acetone, ethyl acetate, butanone, etc...probably up to 10%. They add the extra junk in there to make sure you don't drink it cause it's poisonous, hence the term "denatured" alcohol. You have to be careful with these denaturing chemicals cause they will cause seals and lines to deteriorate and malfunction. I would spray straight meth or water/meth mix. You won't get much advantage if any spraying denatured alcohol, imo.
