    How often do you have to fill your meth tanks?

    I was under the assumption that the meth nozzle sprayed a light mist, but after watching a video of someone testing different nozzles..... they spray a TON!! This makes me wonder how often you guys had to fill your tanks back up.

    Of course it depends on what kind of driving you do, but I was just wondering for the daily driver guys that might only open it wide open a few times a week.

    Thanks

    it depends mainly on 3 things: a) where is your initial spray starting at? (which psi) b) are you a leadfoot? when you make a simple pass do you go into boost? c) how big is your tank (reservoir)

    i personally almost never go into boost unless on the highway, the car just has so much torque down low you dont even need to punch it. my tank is 2.5 gallons, i fill about once or twice a month.

    I usually refill the tank with 1gallon meth/water mix every 3-4 days. I have CM5-CM7 dual nozzle setup. I drive around 40miles on an average weekday.

    Jeezzzzz, how do some of you guys still have your license?!?! I MIGHT make a 50-100 mph run once a week if that and on top of that maybe floor it from 0-60 or 0-80 twice a week..... nothing too crazy. Eventhough I do not open it wide open often.....rest assured I want tons of power there for when I do!!

    I have a 1gal tank which so far i've filled once every 1-1.5 weeks or so? but that is mainly because I just got everything installed and have been doing a ton of datalogging. Once I cut back on the datalogging I won't have to fill up nearly as often

    Only speeding is illegal, accelerating is not (unless your tires spin). I always enjoy a little adrenalin rush from 0-55, 0-85 (freeway onramp), or when I pass someone (a toyota) who's driving like a granny in the fasttlane Click here to enlarge

    2 times a month sounds totally reasonable!! I too only open it wide open when I am either provoked, merging onto the highway, or when I am on a long lonley country road.

    Midol anyone?????????????? haha just kidding Oddjob!

    I do not have my tune or meth kit yet (ordering it next week). I am unsure of what psi it is going to start spraying at. I do know that I want to play it safe.

    I am not a lead foot and when I pass I do so very casually. But, I do enjoy a WOT pass from time to time. I am provoked easily unless it is a Honda. I am going to get the 2.5 gallon tank to minimize the amount of times I have to fill it up. As far as the nozzle size.... I am currently undecided.

    thanks guys lol, appreciate the support. i didnt ask for any of this, really only a response from crash to my questions but thanks anyway lol. and for the record, i dont believe ive ever negg'd you enci. if anything ive tried to boost your rep to power-status because i like your posts.

    anyway crash, glad you responded, i would set your initial spray at around 6-8 psi then. good choice on the tank and for nozzle size i recommend an m7 or similar output. what tune and kit did you decide on?

    I have decided on the JB3 tune and I am considering several different meth kits. I am going with a CM nozzle for sure, but unsure of what size I should get.

    Devil's Own (people has said that this is the best gravity fed tank)
    Labonte (was told this has the best controller)
    BMS (seems to be a very popular choice)

    I have a feeling that none of the meth kits really outperform eachother, but to me even a small difference would be worth it.

    cool. im not here to sell you anything but if you didnt know, labonte makes most of the components for a lot of companies out there. if you ever see the handle: vc-25 on the controller you choose, that is an iteration of the vc-25 made originally by labonte. labonte is a person, not sure if you knew, its his last name. you should give him a call, he's really a fountain of knowledge when it comes to this stuff, there's no obligation to buy anything.
