    Just today I read that mechanics are saying that this is causing problems in a lot of cars. I would be worried about putting it in anything.

    you wont be able to hold enough fuel to go anywhere. it burns about twice as fast as gas for it to make the same power

    its 105 Octane you get more power and it burns cooler
    It is true that a vehicle does require more E85 than regular gas since the amount of energy per unit of ethanol is less than that of gas

    You are contradicting yourself. You're not going to get more power out of E85 when you get less energy per unit. You are also not going to get more power by using a higher octane (slower burn rate) than what the engine is designed to use. The fact is you will get less power and less mileage per gallon using E85 as well as have more fuel system problems due to alcohols tendency to absorb moisture.
