Cool old picture from Nebraska. I didn't realize ethanol was even around in 1933!

It only messes with items that have crude build up. It's alcohol and a great cleaner. Smells nice and sweet even though they denature it.

oh and super cool pic.

E85 is currently getting very popular with the hot rod crew.

Yeah E85 has been hot with many of the tuners for years. You can make some real good power from it.

I believe with the japanese muscle cars... GTR-s, the highest HP ones are running on ethanol. I'm just curious to know if it always has to run on ethanol? Can you do regular gas and change it back and forth when you want to make power?

I believe once you tune it for the ethanol then you have to rock it all the time.

My homies mustang with a turbo and a 420 cubic inch Windsor will make a g to the wheel, with e85. When you set the car up to run it you have to run it. They purchased a test kit to make sure you are getting e85.
