Chemistry has escaped you. Look above my pic ... now find that same thing for Gasoline (or Octane).
Do math, balancing equations.
You'll arrive at an answer that has nothing to do with any volatility or energy. Only a quantity chemical in, quantity chemical out.


... and for some reason that racing kid never did think about that formula under my SN was. I've been on booze for 6? years or so now.

Here's some current articles I just read:

Car craft June 2014 - Turbo Junkies, they all run E85
Car Craft July 2015 - Horsepower!, page 10-11, 900hp E85 turbo 4.6 Ford

It's in all the good car magazines and on all the good forums. People in FI cars are using E85 if it's available. It's been proven on the ST now that you can make more power with plenty of safety than you can on 93.

Go ahead...Stay slow...

Notice the last post?

iminhell's running alky, good local source for him.

Tom just doesn't want to do a performance tune for cars that could end up with anything in the tank...

Two different responses depending on circumstances. Neither of those hates it per se, just use it or not depending on availability/consistency.
