Default E85

anybody run E85 in our cars... specifically 96-98's?? Debating on trying it, just don't want to f*&k anything up.

I already know you don't get as good as mpg, yada yada.... just want to know if it is *safe*

i have two cars running on e85. you will need a size bigger injectors and fuel pump and a custom tuned.

my buddy's 2002 mustang gt gets around 23mpg with it and 17ish in town. Thats on a s/c 433rwhp car. a car uses 10-20%more fuel with running e85. My friend has been running e85 all summer so far no problems. e85 gives you 15% gasoline to lube up fuel pump/injectors/and lines. a perfect burn for e85 is around 9.1ish and regular gasoline is 14.7 a/f ratio.


talk to Andy he has built tons of e85 cars.



this place ask for Dan or Joey(owner).

I've been thinking about it with my car. This site is all you need to know. You need 15% more fuel at normal driving and 20% more at WOT.
