I just put 100 gallon in 18.4x38's of alchohol and it brought the fluid line up just above axle high. No sloshing, and worked great.
The farmall resurector. Bringing them back from the dead.

Please help my ignorance. Why alcohol? Is it mixed with water? I would like to put something in my MD tires, but don's care for calcium chloride because it is so corrosive. In Montana, I would need to freeze protect down to below zero or more.

Iron doesn't care how cold it is.

We use glychol here, which I think is the same as the alcohol Kristin uses. If Im not mistaken its antifreeze of sorts. Ive found that it doesnt eat up your rims near like calcium does. My 18.4-38's were nearly full on my 14 when I bought it. I drained them and gave the cal. to a neighbor and he put it in his 18.4-34s with some left over. I forget how many gallons it was but I was impressed.

If you don't like calcium use either Rim Guard (it is sugar beet juice) or windshield washer fluid. Both will not eat up the rim.
Both are environmental friendly. I use them because of the areas I work if I would leak Calcium, it would cost a fortune to clean the area up.

Thanks,

Never thought of something as simple as washer fluid. Around here it comes with alcohol to keep from freezing, so it should work.
