Is there some special way to make your own 50/50 mix of methanol/water? I know you can just by it pre mixed but it's cheaper to mix your own.
When you say "special", do you mean how do you proportion it as a 50/50 mix; i.e., by weight or by volume?
You can purchase straight methanol and mix it with distilled water yourself; this is what I do. Methanol is available from fuel suppliers (either shipped to you, or from the pump if you're lucky enough to be near a fuel station/race track that carries it), or on the shelf at your favorite auto parts store (HEET Gas Line Antifreeze).
I mix by weight, and it works out to a water/methanol volume ratio of roughly 44/56.
I mix mine in smaller batches; 102 ounces of distilled water with 128 ounces (1 gallon) of methanol, which fits conveniently in a 2 or 2-1/2 gallon fuel container.

i just mix mine in one gallon jug and half way with meth other half with distilled water good to go.
Most race/performance shops have methanol also

10bottles of HEET and 1gal of DISTILLED water will give you roughly your 50/50 by weight
Meth= .825oz per fluid oz
Water= 1.04375oz per fluid oz
58.575oz Meth / 59.493oz Water = 49.6% meth/50.4% water
