I've heard E85 called poor man's race gas. But if it uses 40% fuel?? The cost is pretty close to MS109...
Yeah kind of what I was thinking of Brian....

It will work out to be half the cost in the long run. I confirmed with
some of my super car buddies and that is the consensus.

Nice job Chris, we were just talking about this yesterday on the dyno but there is only one station around here that sells it and it's like all the way across town. The only crappy thing is that the jeeps mpg will go from bad to horrible lol. Already gets terrible gas mileage on pump gas. I'd be filling up every few days.

On the stock bottom end it is cheap insurance. If you compare it to 93 octane here is an example.

E85 =3.00 gallon
93 = lets round to 4.00 gallon

So if you use 40 % more e85 and the cost is 25% less than to run e85
Full time would cost you 15% more money per tank than you are paying for super.
And you will run cooler and make more power.

Lets put this to bed until we see what our stock jeep does power wise.
On 9psi it already made 30 more HP on same tune with pump gas at 5400rpms!!

Yeah maybe you took that the wrong way. I think it's awesome that you guys are playing with E85 to give us another fuel option to run. Looking forward to the results.
