Add Water-Methanol Injection to your 2017-2019 GM 2500HD/3500HD if you're looking for more power, efficiency, and lower EGT's. Typically blended at a 50/50 ratio Water-Methanol provides maximum cooling and gains in power and efficiency. Water-Methanol Systems operate by injecting a high-pressure mixture of water and methanol into the intake of the engine. Water-Methanol Systems cannot operate in low RPM and low boost situations as the water will not vaporize into steam. There typically must be a minimum amount of boost and heat inside the engine for Water-Methanol to be injected. Water-Methanol systems require heat and boost in order to instantly vaporize the water into steam, thus preventing potential damage from water being injected into the engine.
Water-Methanol Injection functions best on vehicles that are regularly used for towing or competition-use. Snow Performance and Banks Power are a few of the manufacturers available that offer Water-Methanol systems for your diesel. Water-Methanol mixtures can be purchased already blended and ready to pour in, or it is a common practice to make your own mixture using water and windshield washer fluid that contains methanol.

Water-Methanol Systems benefit the engine by cooling the intake and exhaust air temps as well as providing more efficient combustion from the added methanol. Due to the nature of how Water-Methanol works, the systems will not be very beneficial for vehicles that are driven lightly or simply cruise on the freeway.
