Damn... 3/4's way through an email only to have the power flicker for 1 second. Thats Conondale for ya.

Your problem are the amounts.
You will need:
1 litre oil- new or used
NaOH (lye/ caustic soda), at least 6g. Used as a drain cleaner and can often be found next to the Drano. (Start with 6 grams)
Methanol at least 250ml.
