I would think you would need all stainless steel lines etc. Plus, I heard it would be a federal offense to convert an older car (sorta like removing your cats... and who would do that)

Everything i read and ive read ALOT up on this and i work at a FORD dealership. 80's 90's can run E85 its just not in your best intrest, Now you can run E10 - E15 and run fine BUT!!!! is corrosive over time.. Hope this helps a lil..
Look at the bright side more people buy E85 means less demand for oil mean oil prices drop a lil YAY LoL ..... Wishful thinkin anyhow

i would not run e85 in any thing that was not designed for a flex fuel type of application. at my shop we have had people come in with vehicles that were not ment to run e85 and it turns the check engine light on and causes all sorts of lean misfires. it also can ruin the rubber seals in the carburetors (accelerator pumps and power valves) and cause them to leak internaly or externaly. besides if you really sit down and do the math you really do not save any money because you actually get worse fuel economy. the only good thing about e85 is that it reduces the dependance on forgin oil.
