Car seems faster with ethanol

I recently tried some E85 in my car. Just because I can. The focus now seems faster which I didn't think was possible with ethanol. Is the engine capable of changing the timing due to ethanol's higher octane? The milage has gone down but if I can easily get more performance I'll do it. Anyone notice a change with ethanol?
