To power a car, moonshine—in this case, illicit homemade whiskey—must have an extremely high alcohol content, at minimum 150 proof (or 75 percent alcohol by volume), or 190 proof for best results.
During the Prohibition, moonshine could be as weak as 63 proof and as strong as 190 proof.
What alcohol is 40 proof?
Answer: Proof is defined as twice the alcohol (ethanol) content by volume. For example, a whisky with 50% alcohol is 100-proof whiskey. Anything 120-proof would contain 60% alcohol, and 80-proof means 40% of the liquid is alcohol.

Does moonshine get you drunk?
The alcohol in moonshine is the same as that of beer, wine, gin, etc. Pick your poison, and it’s the same alcohol. It is called ethyl alcohol, or ethanol, and it’ll get you drunk–some faster, some slower. Shots of Tequila tend to get downed much quicker than a 12 oz. bottle of beer.
