The VID shows nothing about e85 if he is doing a custom mixture and he isnt making 680HP on 94 octane fuel , more like he is running e100 or e105 and his octane is 100-108

e85 in my opinion is a dangerous unregulated octane fuel that cost more money then its worth as it lowers the MPG , you pay lower cost for the fuel and lower MPG so where is the trade off ?

If e85 was octane regulated like every other fuel sold in the US then yes it would be a good low cost higher octane fuel for NA or Boost

I wont run e85 and tell others the down sides of it as well , I have not found an upside to this fuel yet
