Not a silly question, but yes it is e85 compatible and has flex fuel hardware including 1000cc injectors and fuel pump as standard

no worries, for some reason I had the thought that only the SIDI V6 was e85-friendly. You'll need to plug it into a scanner to know for sure why the CEL is on. Let us know how you go and good luck with it.

Ok thanks, any recommendations on a good scan tool? I tried a cheap Bluetooth one from eBay that said it was compatible but it didn’t work very well

I don't know about the redline but my 2014 ssv has this inside the fuel flap.
I would think the 2013/2014 redline would have the same l77 as the ssv?
