Methanol, also known as wood alcohol, is a volatile, combustible, colourless and noxious liquid with the chemical formula CH3OH. It is a polar liquid at room temperature and exhibits excellent blending properties. Methanol also has a high octane and oxygen content due to which it produces a cleaner burning gasoline which helps to lower the emissions caused by vehicle exhaust.
