Fill up my tank more lol. With the right ignition timing and higher compression you can achieve the same mpg's. So i have read anyway. We will see what happens when i get my compression up another point real soon.

The nearest station to me is around 15 miles. Not too much of a drive, but definitely not close or convenient.

E85 is tricky to find in the Cincy area, only seen 2 places, closest being 10 miles around..Fail.

Most e85 is corn free as well nowadays, it is close to one of the least efficient ways to produce e85 if I remember right.Switchgrass being the best, it produces around 700% more energy than it takes to harvest it.

Typically regular is 87 octane. In high altitude areas it's actually 85 octane, but it acts the exact same as 87 at sea level.
Please PM or email me if you see any issues with the site.

No you can run the car with different octane ratings.
