im sure no one has used it but yes you can run it in the ski and it will work well. only problem is you will get much worse gas mileage on long trips. but if you kinda hang in one area or drag race alot it will be better

I LOVE E-85!!!!!!
no where near as corrosive as Methanol. I leave it in my aluminum fuel cell all winter with no problems.
If you have old rubber hoses, it might eat them but not aggressively, like overnight. Put some new hoses on, no big deal.
Does not absorb water anywhere near as bad as Methanol. I do keep it in tightly sealed storage drums. The little vent hole in my fuel cell does not seem to put water into the fuel.
Has an octane around 105-110. It's kinda hard to rate it's octane since it's a different type of fuel than gas. It LOVES compression!!! 15-1 is a nice comp. ratio. Very resistant to detonation.
Huge cooling effect when put into the intake manifold. Perfect for boosted engines.
You use about 30% more fuel for the same amount of work. Either a different fuel map or injectors would have to be worked out.
Here's a link for more info.
There's a link on the site to find the nearest E-85 station.
Sea Doos with EFI run a sealed/non vented fuel system. No problem with water getting in there.
