    - You can feel your car weaker if running on high water content gas (MeOH)
    - I have not checked, but MeOH evaporates much better than H2O. You can dip a filter paper into the gas and see how fast it evaporates
    - One way to remove H2O out of MeOH is to use some kinds of adsorbers

    * The best way is to bring samples for analysis and then fine the gas station
