hi guys I did a search but couldnt find anything.

I was thinking of tuning my vx ls1 with a turbo to the new E85 fuel, what do you guys think of the E85 - negatives vs positives?

ive found some United Servos that sell the stuff.. Havnt seen it at anything like Shell BP or nothing.. Would the car work running from straight E85? ..

I thought the E85 was a racing fuel? I cant believe that the united are selling it, have they made cars that use the E85?

saw an article in wheels or drive a while back... did a test and found as far as feul consumption goes its pretty bad, v-power was still better in terms of $/km
also if the engine wasnt designed for that kind of feul i wouldnt be swapping without a fair bit of research
