    I never exceed 10mph. 89 and E85, both have the same results. I still achieve 10mph.

    I'm probably still going to get 40 miles to the tank.

    Except one is easier on the wallet. It's the only reason I made this decision.

So if u aren't even revving the car it won't ever be able to use the e85 but you don't have the bigger injectors or pump or lines to run it. The only reason they change the lines is because they need to be bigger to move more fuel. Basically u aren't doing anything but using diff gas. Pour some alcohol in it lets really spice it up.
    Ethanol octane is supposedly only 97, while methanol is 96. The magic happens with vaporize cooling effect. Methanol can provide up to 7x the cylinder cooling over gasoline and ethanol is 5x, for a perceived higher octane.

    It is what it is. I will be running my car on e85 but I will using bigger lines and bigger injectors and pump with a tunable Ecu. You only have 70% the go you used to have.

    If it does the same but cheaper, then I still gained something. Next up is to buy it without road taxes.

    I need a ecm from Mexico or Brazil.


    Next tank if I can find E100 I'll give that a shot too.

    e85 requires roughly a 30% increase in fuel to achieve correct air fuel ratios.

    Apartment complex. ALOT of short trips. I do 40 miles every 2 months or so. Every key on its lucky to get up to operating temperature a few times a week.


    I do believe it's all in the government, and the software....

    At 40 miles per tank, methinks it's running a bit on the rich side to begin with.

    In for melted stuff from it running ridiculously lean.

    While it may run pretty much the same I'm going to guess and say the fuel mileage will probably go down.

    BTU wise you get more 'bang for the buck' with straight gasoline.
