You're not buying E85 bc its cheaper than pump gas but bc its cheaper than race gas. You cant compare 105 oct to 93 lol.

E85 is worth the upgrade

Its Expensive to go fast and do it Right guys and girls. You cant expect to mod your car and get 40mpg.

Yes we want a fast car and good gas mileage but less you wanna go ProEFI ecu so you can switch tunes then you gotta give up one

^That's exactly my point. Though, IMO the gain from E85 is not worth the effort/cost in all our cars/builds.

Run a car with e85 and you will retract your previous statement. Or go home and cry

It's not that, it's just if you are in the moding game and looking for mpg etc you are out of your league.

You do not see this crap with the modded corvette crowd. It's always mustang owners.

Every positive you do is going to have a negative effect somewhere. Either mpg, reliability, etc

If your looking to mod your car be ready to spend a lot of $ to be competitive to today's standards.
Everyone wants something for nothing

That's a short-sighted view you have about modding. There's always a need to weigh the pros and cons. Anybody can just throw money at a build. Just like anybody can just throw out any idea of drivability, whether it's MPG's or the ability to carve corners, etc. Trying to achieve the maximum result and still obtain a goal set is much harder. Not everybody has deep pockets. I choose to mod mine and keep it fully drivable on long or short trips and stay to stay within the abilities of the stock drivetrain. Besides, it's an assumption that I care how many MPG's I get just because I monitor it. The reason I monitor my MPG's is to follow any performance changes that might happen.

I agree with you. I dd my car most of the time because I choose too. It's more fun then my truck and the mpg is better! I am modding it but only to a point. It will never be some purpose built race car that "can" be Street driven. Sometimes it sees the track sometimes it sees Street action. 90% is cruising or going to work tho. That said I'll weigh my options on if e85 is worth it. Me personally it doesn't seem to be worth the hassle and investment needed for 20hp and minus 30% economy.... Now if e85 was a buck cheaper or so.... But have to say if I ever go FI it would be a no brainer.
