Snows performance methanol injection question

I have an 06 6.0 with an sct tuner and 4" mbrp exhaust. I was talking to river city diesel about snows performance mpg maxx kit and they seemed to really recommend it. Theres not much on here but what i have found is alot of mixxed conflicting opinions. Does anyone have actual experience with this kit and how well it works?

There were some members from along time back that had some of these kits. RCD has alot of experience with 6.0L PowerStrokes, so they would likely know how it performs in a 6.0L. But remember, water/meth is a fuel, and you just don't want to over dose with it and cause high cylinder pressures especially if your not ARP studded. It will clean the intake and combustion chambers very well. If properly setup it can work very well in most diesel applications. Sorry can't offer much more than that, but maybe someone with experience running this setup will chime in.

I run the Stage 2 Snow W/M kit. Only has 2 injectors, where the stage 3 has 3 injectors. The stage 3 controller also has more user adjustments than the stage 2 controller.

I don't see any MPG gain with the stage 2. The stage 3 with its third injector comes on at 2 psi of boost and for the small injector, this is where you might gain MPG.

Seat of the pants power can be felt, even with just washer fluid. I mainly use W/M to keep EGT down when towing or running WOT.

So what do you want to know?

I love my snow stage II kit. I use nothing but winter blend winshield washer fluid....seems to work the best because the winter blend has more meth in it that summer blend. I've been using water injection for nearly 6 years and i love it.

Yep, same here. Winter blend washer fluid.

I've never bought the "boost juice", but I have mixed my own 51% distilled water with 49% meth.
