e85

Does anyone run e85 in there truck. I know alot of people are running e85 for race cars/ street strip car/ and daily drivers.

I have a bunch of e85 around me and was wondering what it took to run it it

Anyone have any experience with it good or bad.

I have a friend that runs e85 in his termi and picks up almost 100 rwph over 93

For boost or high compression its great, but the fuel system requirements are a lot more.

Luckily with refineries in TX and LA we have E-85 at many stations
Unfortunately its gone up a bit though due to it not taking off as planned. It also draws in moisture so old gas at the stations that rarely gets used may be strongly contaminated with water

Hmm, I thought the vehicle had to be Flex-Fuel friendly to use E85

Found this on Can any car use E85?

So most cars made since the early '90s can handle ethanol. The only problem is that non flex-fuel vehicles don't have the sensors necessary to detect ethanol content. They also don't have the control software to manage the air fuel mixture properly. So your car might run on E85, it just won't run well. It could also cause major damage and using E85 usually voids your warranty. So that's why you should not try it.
