So get this. I spoke with one of our painting subcontractors about toluene. Apparently to buy this product in bulk, aka 5 gallon buckets, you need to go through a background check due to the fact that it is used in the production of meth. And to get approved for large quantity usage you must explain what your use is and for some reason I don't think they are going to like the idea of my use....

And if you were to start buying large quantities of the 1 gallon product, you will be put on the governments watch list. He explained to me that they went from using 3 gallons in one month to 9 gallons the next month and they had DEA knocking on their door.

Back to the drawing board!

p.s. And from my calcs it would take three gallons of toluene per tank to raise the ocatane rating to 91.79 (about $12 per tank)
Apparently I am a car slut!?
