Does any one know if you can run alcohol and nitro in a poly carbonate fuel cell.

I've run a plastic cell with methanol. Don't know if it was polycarbonate.

Plastic fuel cells are normally polyethylene. Poly carbonate is normally a translucent plastic used for windshields, canopies, etc.

Yes but don't use one with the foam filling.

There are different foams available depending on the fuel you're using.

  Stainless steel is what I used... I just dump in a gallon of old alcohol every year and slosh it around and presto... sparkling like new!
