Hope you have a open Credit Card,
As E85 is HEAPS much more expensive then 98, 95, 91 & E10,
Where it was an average price between 95 & 98 as one stage.

PS: Most United stations have E85,
Keeping mind FYI -
"Research by the U.S. Energy Information Administration shows that pure ethanol has a lower heating value than gasoline, so it makes it harder to start a car's engine in areas with a cold climate. This difficulty in cold cranking is why ethanol blends contain a fraction of gasoline. E85 gas is suitable for use in any vehicle designated as a flex-fuel vehicle by the manufacturer. Cars.com reports that flex-fuel vehicles are capable of running on both ethanol-gasoline blends and regular gasoline. Consumers can use the Department of Energy's vehicle cost calculator to determine how much a flex-fuel vehicle can save on fuel costs and greenhouse gas emissions".

Maybe that explains why Myself, and others have issues starting in the mornings with E85,
If you do, run it down to 3/4 of a tank,
and top it up with E10. ;)
then it wont be a problem in the morning on first start.

The 15% petrol in E85 is to assist starting.
When Caltex sold E-Flex fuel the ratio varied through the year, was E85 in summer dropping to E70 in winter.
