Water injection Drinks more alcohol than I do

OK anyone know of why this is happening?

Im using water/alcohol injection tapped into my 2.5L washer fluid resovoir. I use a 50/50 mix of alcohol and distilled water. It seems I have to refill my resovoir every 2-4 days. My cars is drinking more alcohol than me!!! I cant seem to find any leaks. Anyone know if this is normal?

Do you manually use the water injection or does it work automatically?

It may be a little close to the same, but a friend of mine has a 68 firebird that is blown and alcohol injected and he said it takes twice the alcohol as the cam2 he was running. I am guessing thats where the extra power comes from.

Well a lot of people with my setup run 30/70 alcohol/water mix but i dotn want to be as cheap as them.

How often does your buddy go through, say 2.5L of a mix?


And anyone know about retrofitting a e39 M5 5.0L washer fluid tank in my car?

The thing holding you back from installing the larger water tank is space... if you can find space... you can do it... all the hook ups should be the same. Connections I mean.

Any idea how much the 5.0L tank costs? I want to see what it looks like. I have some space to use in my engine bay and could probably just drill it down dependign on shape.

Because the e39 M5 has a 5.0Liter washer fluid tank compared to my puny 2.5L.

If the fluid tank is made out of plastic or resin, and you had something just barely blocking it from installation, you could heat it up and reshape it to make it fit.
