I would use caution with those thinking of using e85 in the ST

e85 isnt known for its octane but for its effects on cooling the air thus lowering the chance of knock , problem is the fuel is now sprayed directly on top of the pistons being direct injection at over 900psi now you dont have the time for cooling the air as much as you did when spraying into the valves + the 30% more needed fuel , the ecu can adjust for this but?
