I'm working on it now
You also need a license from HMRC and you also need to use a specific Ethanol for mixing with fuel or again the tax man comith.The pump E85 mix can vary throughout the year, might cause tuning issues from batch to batch.
Why not make it yourself, just mix ethanol and fuel? think a licence is required though for storing/owning 100% ethanol
Smells real nice Adam .I've got 50 litres in the Garage and regularly go out for a sniff......what a sado:chuckle:SUNOCO (anglo american fuels) sell drums (big and small) of E85R (E85)....
We used it a bit in 2011/12 and used Morrisions E85 a lot in 2010 when it was fairly widespread in the UK. Its a major pain it the arse that they withdrew it.
The GTR was mapped to run a few different mixes...
650bhp on V Power - 1.7bar
675bhp on 25% E85 75% V Power - 1.7bar
700bhp on 50% E85 50% V Power - 1.7bar
Mapping was done with the morrisions fuel.. the Sunoco was better.
We had more to go on those maps, the torque was much better, and most gains were just through ignition advance rather than more boost.
One issue we did have was with fuel lines.... Some started to break down and needed replaced after 2 years of mixed E85 use. The problem lines were at the swirl pot so would have had constant fuel sitting there for long periods.
Injectors were getting towards 100% duty too on the 50% mix... so you'd def need to look into fueling upgrades if you wanted to run it full time in large mixes. I think a rough rule of thumb is if using E85, you would need 150% of the amount of fuel injected
Also smells nice :lol:
Our engine uses 14% more E85 than Race Fuel and about 20-25% more than Pump Fuel,Yep, 50% more fuel consumption, but it isn't 2/3rds the price.
If you get it then ctek is a huge advantage due to true flex fuel support which detects the mix ration accordingly an adjusts the map automatically.
Race fuel from VP is great but if you are willing to seriously upgrade your fuel system then E85 is better if you have also the bigger turbo's and can hold higher boost and or course more timingDo you prefer E85 to something like VP Import John?
