Does anybody know if there's any difference in black barrel and blue barrel methanol? I've used VP M1 but it's getting harder to find locally. My local propane fuel company is willing to pump their black barrel methanol out of their 55gal drum for me. Labels appear to be the same but I want to make sure it's acceptable quality for water/meth injection applications. Thanks

I'm going to paste the most informative and useful response I have received from a different forum below, in case anybody else stumbles on this thread later and is searching for the same answers...

"The only way to be sure is to take a look at the certificate of analysis for the two drums. There are different levels of purity. At a minimum if you choose to go with the material from the black drum filter it through some high quality paint filters to make sure you don’t get any debris from the drum wall into your tank. The black drums are typically reused and not always well cleaned prior to fill. The blue fuel drums are typically single use and disposed of or repainted black and used for other chemicals. I used to deal with this stuff on a daily basis and there are different versions of 99.9% pure when it comes to bulk chemicals.

Good luck with whatever route you choose."
