Default Re: has anyone tried e85 yet?

i ran it for awhile in one of my jet 80 motors, mixed it 50-50 with 87 octane, ran very good. leaned out the over rich stock jetting just right. i don't know how much it affected gas mileage but it must not have been much because i didn't notice any loss of mileage or power. e85 is the hot thing for turbo hot rods now. = cheap race gas. i'd have to say that running the 50-50 mix was just as effective as rejeting the carb. i now have a smaller jet and it runs real smooth. about the same as the mix did.
