Set my car up as a flex fuel car now and testing e85. Thoughts so far, I should have done this ages ago!

So far with just dialling in the ethanol fuel table it's using around 25-30% more fuel but that's just tooling around the street before setting the blend curve between ethanol and gasoline. I've not put it on the motorway to stretch its legs yet as I really lean on it cruising so should see a bit better there. Throttle response is better and hits the converter harder on the street. Will see if it correlates to more mph at the track later next month.

Tried uploading the pics but it comes up with an error. Maybe the photo resolution needs to be dropped. I stripped the car as it wasn’t as good as described. I didn’t go look so it’s my fault as well. The paint job was horrible so I’ve spent a few days stripping and sanding. God how I hate prep...I forgot that . Today I got the car into 2 pack primer. Took 4 ltrs to do two coats lol.
