I was wondering if anyone was running e85 or e98 in there car? Just looking for feedback etc.

I'm running e85 in my Mach. I picked up 72rwhp and 42rwtq over 91.

Are you finding any negatives with it on a street car? Do you test the e85 to see ethanol amount or are you just running the few as it comes each time?

only negative i can say is fuel mileage but im in boost A LOT. ive never tested it once i had my tuner set my tune up on the safe side so i wouldnt have to worry about it.

I could care less about fuel mileage so that is good lol. I have twin bosch 044 pumps on my car so I need to add a third on step up to a larger pump. What I have now is good for 1-1200rwhp but that is on gasoline. I have an aluminum fuel safe fuel cell that has a bladder and foam inside it. That is a concern for me.......I need to check and make sure the steel braided lines I used are compatiable with ethanol as well

Corn is where it's at :) RS fuels on memorial and hefner pkwy is your best bet. The owner "Token" is a car guy and is pretty anal about his E lol so it should be true E85 regardless of the season. He even got E98 recently since some of the car guys requested it, it's a true fuel station for enthusiasts IMO and there service is beyond awesome (if they see something strange with the pumps they are asking you about it before you are asking them, I've never been to a station like it. A new fuel station right by my house incorporated E but I trust Token and I've never heard of customer service at a gas station or experienced it till I went there so I'm buying his stuff for life :)

when i setup my fuel system the only E85 TESTED and Safe fuel line i could find was Aeroquips push lock others i read about werent holding up.
eric hood 01.03.2012, 05:53
That is good bc that is the station I planned on using! So you went with the aeroquip?

What is the oct rating of e98?
Third Honk 01.03.2012, 13:35
Not sure and honestly there's debate on whether it's better than E85, however some of the local supra guys have seen more power on E98 than on C16. Basically it's pretty much impossible to detonate on E from what I've seen, you take your timing up till it quits making more power then back it down to it's lowest timing setting that made that high power.

Some debate that you can't push e85 beyond what you need and that e98 may not even be a better solution (it's on going.) I feel bad for token because he catered to the enthusiast and even asked if people wanted and then brought it in based on those responses. Now people aren't sure, I just hope he's making money off of it. You do have to add a lubricant to the fuel when running 98 but I've seen some supra's making stupid power on it.

Once I get comfortable with finding the lubricating additive and adding it I'll run it and just see what happens.

We had aeroquip pushloc on a mustang with e85 and within 2 months the fittings and lines were leaking.

[QUOTE=Third Honk;1******4 You do have to add a lubricant to the fuel when running 98 .[/QUOTE]

If you have to add lube to is there any advantage of e98 vs alky? Alky was 2 bucks a gallon a few weeks ago. Does e98 burn 2:1 like alky does?

That's odd I've been runnin it since October and no issues.

I am looking for a set of 160lb injectors so I am going to make the change to E85:)
eric hood 10.03.2012, 00:59
Does anyone know this "Token" guy to ask him what percentage his E85 is all year round? I bought a tester so I can have a consistent fuel in my car. Some have summer and winter blends that go from 85% to 70% that is a big issue on tuning.
