Default Re: Ethanol

How much ethanol in the blend?

You should have no problems up to 15% ethanol. After that your enginemayl need a needle clip adjustment .

Hmm, I was actually thinking the other day...wonder how well you could get E-85 running in one of these engines....

Anyway, the more Ethanol in your blend, the more fuel you need to dump into the motor. As Bikeguy said, the motor may need a bit of a fuel adjustment.
