Somewhere around 2 gallons of e85 with the rest 93 Octane = e30, yes?

Been dying to try the mix. I got 3 e85 station 5-10s from my house. So does it hurt/help perfomance if you put more or less e85?

You'll need to get an E85 tune first before you can run E85. Can't just run it off a stock tune.

This has yet to be discovered on the Stinger 3.3TT, as far as I know. Ford's engines have been able to advance timing and adjust for e30 in their Fiesta ST for years with numbers that prove better results for e30 over 93 octane. This needs to be tested for our cars.

I'm jb4 certified. I guess my issue is getting a station that doesnt have a "true" e85 pump. In California Pearson fuel no longer guarentee e85 or even e80 sometimes it can be e30-e70 which sucks.

I've been running 4 gallons of E85, topped with 93 on the JB4 map 3 for about 2 months now. Car runs great with this setup

There's a station in town who advertises E85 and the test kit showed E72...

Most of them are not actually 85% ethanol. My local e85 pump has a small sticker on it that says "contains 75% ethanol."
