105 octane on the way!!

Well,

I ordered a E85 Kit, now I can be a tree hugger in my focus. Actually I will be doing Dyno testing to see what gains running E85. Gas is 3.19 in WI and E85 is 2.49.

focus_SWT (station wagon turbo) - just not yet!

Which conversion kit did you buy? I'm very interested in your project and dyno results as well. Please keep us in the loop on this.

change2e85

the one from change2E85.com the cost is OK.

I figure I also have a 425 HP 7.3l F350 Crew cab Dually. And I like to impersonate a locomotive just bellowing black smoke. Maybe this will offset my pollution a little bit.
