Anyone heard of E85?

This sounds really interesting. Around $2.00/gallon and it's 105 octane.
To bad you lose 15-20% MPG.

Re: Anyone heard of E85?

Yeah, mileage has always been the problem with alcohol as a fuel. It's cheap, burns clean and even burns cooler (hence why it's used in a lot of drag cars). But to get around the number of miles we do from a tank of gasoline, it would take a huge "alcohol tank".

Of course, E85 is sort of a hybrid which makes it more expensive and slightly better on the mileage.
