Just purchased a car running a 1050 dominator using E85.
I have 2 1050 dominators set up for methanol . Question is , what are the differences in the setup for these carbs with the two different fuels.

Wanting to know what would need to be done to run methanol on the E85 carb that is currently on the car.

Just put on one of your alky carbs on it and/or sell the e85 carb. There really is no reason to convert the e85 to alky. It can be done but why? Serious question. Is e85 not in your area?


Do not argue with an idiot. They will drag you down to their level and beat you with experience.

You would possibly need booster changes and metering block recalibration.

Most likely new booster inserts, banjos modified for larger stake tubes, and probably new metering blocks. Depending on who does it $500-$600 range.

What color fuel jugs does everyone use for E85??

I have always used red for gas, and white for methanol.

I use yellow for gas (says Diesel on it) and red for E85. If anyone tries to steal my fuel, they're in for a surprise.

I agree with FastLane. Bolt on one of your Alky carbs and go. Or run E85.
