Guest bastaad525 Posted December 13, 2004 Share Posted December 13, 2004 Just reading in article in this months Car and Driver. Brock Yates writes a column for them now, and in this months, he was talking about the recently ever-popular topic of alternate fuels for the future of automobiles. In the article he passingly mentions a (relatively?) new fuel dubbed 'E85', which is corn based ethanol mixed with 10 or 15% regular gasoline. Supposedly, this stuff yields an octane rating of approximately 104, burns cleaner than regular fuel, and is priced at about the same per-gallon as regular 87 octane fuel. Sounds like one hell of a sweet deal for us turbo guys!!! He goes on to state that some regular gas stations around the country were starting to carry this fuel.... but where?!?!?!?!?! I haven't seen or heard anything of this... if I had I"d be all over it. 104 octane for 87 price?!?!?! SIGN ME UP! So, has anyone seen this stuff for sale in their area? Anyone using it? Would there be any problems to using this in our turbo Z motors? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
