That mixture was essentially what is sold as Cox racing fuel common with the ole R/C airplanes and cars. Believe COX used 20% Palm oil.

And do what with it? I realize this is posted in alt. fuel section but usually references fuel for a diesel. I can't imagine any blend using nitromethane being very economical, unless someone had a supply they wanted to get rid of.

In October 1994, McVeigh showed Michael Fortier and his wife, Lori, a diagram he had drawn of the bomb he wanted to build.[42] McVeigh planned to construct a bomb containing more than 5,000 pounds (2,300 kg) of ammonium nitrate fertilizer, mixed with about 1,200 pounds (540 kg) of liquid nitromethane and 350 pounds (160 kg) of Tovex.


MUCH more powerful than diesel.
