The dealership said that the only difference between the 12 and 13 was that the 13 was certified for flex fuel by Ohio... which is the only state that certifies flex fuel vehicles. The waiting list was so long they never got to the new mustang until now so the new 13 is a flex fuel vehicle... but they can't claim that for the 12's because it was never certified... but they are direct injected just like the 13's and all that stuff... now this is all coming from the lips of a salesman and we all know they say anything to make a sale and this is the only place I have heard this from so I'm going to do my own research.

i would definitly investigate good. because the ecu needs to have the provision the adjust to the fuel. e85 runs at a higher pressure and maybe some other changes that the ecu know when to adjust.

my explorer is flex fuel but i dont run it. first you lose up to 20-25% of your gas milage. usually the price of e85 is not more than 25% cheaper to buy. which in my case makes it not worth it. also i have heard bad things about what it does to your valves. i have seen a few tests that have been done where they ran 2 engines, one with regular fuel and the other with e85 and the e85 engine's valve looked like the has a million miles on them compared to the gas engines. so IMO its not worth it.

if i were running a high hp drag car i would run it. first off the motor isnt gonna see any where as near fuel threw it than a dd. and second it is equal to around 116 octane. for the price it is you can get about 4-5 gallons of it compared to one gallon of 110 race fuel. plus i lke the sound of 9 second e85 cars. they actually have a deeper tone to them.

E85 has a high alcohol content that WILL attract condensation..if your car isn't made for e85 dont use it unless you want problems!...

Well scratch that idea American muscle won't even listen to my idea of creating a tune for e85. They won't even write a tune for racing fuel!

But e85 might as well be water, burns slow in town but swallows it whole on the highway, but then again im a hot head for the 91
