you can go to e85 forums and talk to guys over there.My buddy ran it in his car last year and it worked great for him.I just bought a prosytems e85 carb and will be trying it for myself this year.IT was 2.39 per gallon the other day by my house compared to the cheap racing gas which is 6.50-6.75 per gallon.And thats only the half of it.At least where I live you have to chase the racing gas down.The e85 burns about 32% more fuel than gas so at that rate you will have roughly $3.16 for e85 to get the same volume and or mileage I guess as 6.50 racing gas.It burns cooler and there is a increase of hp and torque.e85 is right in the middle of gasoline and alchol.I have only been researching this for a short time so please go talk to the experts they are out there..

talked to a guy at ODDYs and he told me they have done a few blown small blocks on e-85 and made 1000 HP and said is a great feul. I know with any ahcohl feul on a small block you should not go any higher then 11 to 1 on static cmpression
