I'll see today how the MPG's go as I have to drive another 25 miles to work. With these mixed reviews I might just stay 87, but I'll have to see how many miles I can gain with E85 and if nothing and even possibly lose mileage, I'll stick to regular.
Glad to hear you gave it a try. Let us all know how it works for you after you run a tank through. I'll be curious to see if you get thee same results that I have seen.
