In the 50s I pumped gas at 9.9 during one of the best gas wars, spent  
4 hours never left the pumps was high on carbon monoxide and gas  
fumes at the end of that afternoon.  Last night when I filled up the  
pickup I stared at the dial and just could not believe it could take  
that much to fill it up and today it would be higher yuck is a little  

mix in the moonshine with the gas should make a combustible mixture.   
But may need to save it for medicinal purposes.
