Re: Petrol Engine vs Pulse Jet

Hi People!

Sailboats are elegant but are not meant to be
very fast, compared to pulse jet speed boat.
I heard that ethanol can be used to fuel pulse jet.

Do you think methanol engine can be converted easily to run on ethanol? I
heard that the glow plug needs to be turned on all the time.

Has anybody tried running the methanol engine on ethanol?
