switching to E85

Post by raym5_0 on Thu May 02, 2013 4:35 pm

I probably wont have the terminator out this year. Sad

I'm switching to corn for its octane level, and decided to install some mods that have been gathering dust, switching to a return type fuel setup & few other things. So swapping injectors, pumps, and fuel lines...should be able to add alot of timing that wasnt possible with 93 octane. I have been resistant to make the switch, mainly because the lack of gas stations that carry E85, but a recent check, it looks like approx 6-8 locations ( Jackson, Lansing, East Lansing ). Crazy even though it takes more ethanol to be the equivalent to gasoline, that it has an octane value of 105 that helps fight off detonation affraid Another benifit to ethanol is it cools down the combustion chamber because of its properties.... drawback decreased fuel mileage, since it requires more....but factor in the extra amount needed in price, its about the same price as 93octane.

hope to catch up with everyone later in the summer....
