    If you want to use industrial / 10% ammonia, please add 1200 mg. of Ibuprofen to the mix. Don't forget to mix it with some distilled water first and then filter it to get rid of some of the leftover buffer.   Could a chemistry inclined person in the group please explain the additions to the ammonia for me. It can be better said.   Thanks - Handy Dan

Well, I for one do not understand the chemistry you present, but most engines are ready for 100% ammonia - Some mix with a few percent gasoline to lubricate the valves and pistons, but that can be modified to ammonia. What one must consider is that ammonia as well as pure hydrogen is a dry fuel, so no lubrication there.
