You did - after it was tuned for ethanol.Reread what I wrote. I never said it would be better than gas.
You can still make big power with ethanol, it is still alcohol after all. It's not as simple as that though. You can pretty much retrofit any vehicle as long as you've got the electronics behind it.Apparently it could be tuned for E85 and you'd get better mileage, but then it would be worse with regular gas.
Guy I know in Arizona running a turbo 250ci I6 in a '63 Falcon is using ethanol, he has said that on a hard run the intake is frosted over from the drop in temp that the ethanol experiences.I'm researching converting my E30 to run it when I go turbo. There are "some" advantages for FI.
Yep yep, imagine what's happening inside as well. I would think depending how cold it actually gets that you could get intake temps into the 50° range with some planning.Guy I know in Arizona running a turbo 250ci I6 in a '63 Falcon is using ethanol, he has said that on a hard run the intake is frosted over from the drop in temp that the ethanol experiences.
I think he has dipped into the high 9 seconds on a pass.
Nope, and some lady was made locally famous last year when she refused to sell such to some other lady at a store, the woman who was trying to buy the ciggies and booze complained to the store manager and the saleslady was canned.still? I remember that shit from when i was a kid and it pissed me off then, i thought they killed that back in the 90s though.

There were actually letters to the editor in support of being able to buy those items with EBT cards
Issue seems to have died down again though.
what the fuck, over.
My parents werent poor when i was growing up, but we were frugal. Only could afford meat a couple times a month, no fresh fruit or veggies in the winter (grew our own in the summer), etc. And we would be checking out with the basics at the store, and stupid motherfuckers with 40k dollar lifted trucks would be checking out in front of us with carts full of lobster tails and cigs and booze and then pay with food stamps (they were actually stamps back then).
Even as a 10 year old, that shit didnt sit right with me.
You said it would get better milage. There isnt a way for that too happen with an engine designed originally to run gas. You would have to tear it down and completely rebuild/redesign major components.
You cannot "tune" for better mileage with E85, universally flex fuel vehicles get better mileage with gasoline than with E85. You would have to completely build an engine to take advantage of E85. You would have to shave the head and deck the block to increase compression, you'd have to replace the injectors, you would have to replace sensors and reprogram the engine's computer, you'd have to add a sensor that could figure the particular mix of ethanol:gasoline so that the timing and air-fuel tables could be adjusted properly to get the maximum burn.Yes, if tuned for E85 it would get better mileage than it does now.
government is already down 500k people since 2007
Its in its biggest decline since post WWII.
That said, it looks like this shit may actually happen unless congress pulls their heads out of their asses today and gets some last minute shit together
