    Water/Meth in the winter

    I randomly thought of this on the way to work today: For all you guys that have a real winter (see: snow) and run meth do you see any benefits at all running water/meth when the air is already so cold or do you switch it to 100% meth in the winter months?

    i know it's a little early to be thinking about winter, but I'm ready for the snow

    yeah what i mean is when the ambient temps are 0-20f (or even colder into the negatives)... is there any point to running any water in the mixture at all. I'm looking for real world experience.

    I hear there are issues with freezing as well, so you have to run a very high percentage meth mix.. might as well just run straight meth then it seems.

    HHmm.. in -20+ it may be a concern, but knowing that WW fluid is either rated @ -20 or -32 , i would think anything beyond that would need to be 100% meth, or at least a much higher ratio.

    I wouldn't think it would be a problem if you ran 80-20 meth to water... I remember watching my buddies iat over the winter drop into the 30's one night while we were logging :snowman:
