Methanol is challenging to get, and it may be easily contaminated simply by the moisture in the air. Methanol is manufactured from natural gas: oil and coal, whereas gasoline, is obtained from petroleum. Methanol is used as a fuel in internal combustion engines, while gasoline is used for tuning engine performance or decreasing toxic exhaust emissions.

Gas is also used as a solvent for diluting paints. Methanol is used as a substitute for gasoline, but the substitution is costly. Methanol is also considered a reducing agent for the ozone precursor emissions, but it is expensive. Methanol vehicles offer better performance, and they are less prone to form ozone, but when compared to gasoline, methane is rather costly.
