been running e85 for 2 weeks...its burning it...oh and that article you put up hough made kinda was reading like stereo instructions...i didn't have the attention span for all of it....its allittle lacking on some high end...maybe its time to modify...if e85 requires less air than maybe i could increase the jet...i dont know but i finally got some time off to tinker
