Ethanol blend

Has anyone on here ran an ethanol blend I.E. E35-E40? I am planning to take the car to the track (PBIR) sometime this week so I am looking for some feedback. Current mods are ROW boxes, Green filter, 2nd cat delete and a tune. Going to mount a set of D/R fingers cross I nail a 11.99999!

Not with out a flex fuel kit. You can run e85 if you get eurocharged flex fuel kit. Otherwise fill up with race gas instead.

OE Tuning has always offered a 50/50 E85/premium pump gas blend, Race gas tune (no higher than 50% blend of E85). This is a specific race gas type tune only to be run with this fuel blend. Many members on this forum have this calibration, 7300rpm limit non-p31, 7500rpm limit p31, black series and 507.

I have recently installed a Flex Fuel Kit from Eurocharged and I have your tune. I have a headers file and a race gas file. Can I use the race gas file with the E85?

I spoke with Eurocharged about this a while back and that would NOT be a good idea. You run the risk of a very lean condition and see through pistons.

From what i've read so far the stock injectors are enough for E30, if i have enough time ill do my own test and throw the car on the dyno just to check the AFR.

I assume you're looking for ethanol to increase the octane rating of the fuel. Is your tune meant for a higher octane, if not higher ethanol concentrations will do nothing for you.

I tried ethanol for the first time a few weeks back.
It was a very conservative mix, I used a 10% eth mixture.

My car has a tune, ROW airboxes, secondary cat delete, resonator delete, and muffler delete.

I definitely felt a difference with eth. It wasn't a massive difference, but definitely felt that the car pulled better.

Is your regular gasoline unblended (ethanol free)?

In the states, the 93/91 unleaded already had 10-15% ethanol mixed with it.

He is from South Africa. Our fuels have a low ethanol content
