    i been hearing and hearin about it.... don't know much of ANYTHING about it.

    couple local gas stations have it, but have not had a chance to read up on it. can only certain vehicles can use it, special engine like a hybrid? or a regular gas engine can take this new 85% ethanol corn stuff?

    The gas in our area is already 10% ethanol. that's about that max to run on a stock vehicle. Only FFV vehicles that are E85 certified can use ethanol at that high (85%) concentration. The alcohol eats up rubber fuel lines, sensors and pump parts. Plus, alcohol is has a much lower BTU's therefore requiring much larger injectors and different fuel map. See the FAQ's @ www.e85fuel.com

    I think my Ford Explorer can handle this stuff because on the refill lid it says fuel or ethanol fuel. Refer to owners manual. I've never done it though

    i get about 12.5 with my slow ass GMC Envoy right now.... 12 stock i can handle since it'll be a hell of a time... and i wont be doing the crazy mods you've got done, haha

    what vehicle is gonna have a nice sound, alot of power, be fun on the street, and be able to tow a 2500 pound double trailer with good gas mileage... that combo just ain't gonna happen i don't think

    sounds like a second job is in need more than anything
