Looking for E85 in the area

The only place I knew of "grocery boys" in crest line have stopped selling it.

I got my Mustang all ready to go and now I have no fuel



Sorry for the non motorcycle post but looking for some local help

Wait, you actually WANT to use E85?

My car was tuned on E85 when I lived out of state and it was easier to get. E85 allows more boost and timing while still being less prone to detonation.

The car made really good power on it, but that is all for not as I am no longer able to find it.

I am looking for a local tuner who can tune Big Stuff3 also, I want/need to go back to a pump gas tune

Maybe you can install a flex fuel sensor that would allow you to run on both regular pump gas and E85.

Looks like Richland is the closest.

175 miles is not worth the trip. time to give up E85 and find a tuner for a pump gas tune.

I've never seen E85 closer than the Dakotas.
If you want it around here, you'll have to make it.

Wait 'til you try it with real gasoline, then.

And it's, "...all for naught..."

Not sure what you meant by real gas. E85 from the pump the car was able to make 25psi and 950 rwhp, on fuel that was $2.50 a gallon.


I am not here to debate the merits of E85 but I can assure you it works ( when available )

Oh, no doubt that it works.
But E85 has less energy per unit than gasoline.

Regardless, you could still make your own if you really want to.

That is one clean Fox, I wish mine were that pretty. My understanding is that E85 's true octane level comes in at around 94-96, so could you run premium gas with an octane booster and be safe?
