    Any place around here that sells E85 ethanol? Anyone ever run this fuel in there flex fuel vehicles? It’s a cheaper fuel, does it give you the same fuel economy?

    I don’t know if anyone sells it around here but on the car forum I frequent their is speculation about the next engine being E85 compatible and the general consensus is that E85 yields more power but worse fuel economy.

    Why would you want to use it? Ethanol has less energy than gasoline, so you will get worse mileage than if you used gasoline. I wish they would get all ethanol out of gasoline.
