Hmm, I thought I read in the manual that came with my car that it stated "if your vehicle supports e85" so I assumed not all of them did. Maybe they use the same manual across multiple years?

I know I've read that Tom doesn't like e85 as you never know what your going to get. Wonder what kind of results the OP can get on a similar day with 93.

I did few gas tanks with pure 93 and now just switched to e85. The car seems to be even smoother and more powerful with e85 . First time i used it i had a bad experience where my car wouldnt run right but that was like 2k miles ago when my car was brand new so maybe that has to do with it. The car definately likes it this tank but I already noticed mpg goig down from about 27 to 24-25 so far with about 30 miles into the tank (city driving only)

Right before I fueled up I noticed my capless gas entry point says gasoline / E0 - E15. I dont think all 2014s support E85. I filled up with 93E10.

Can you link me (and everyone else) to a Ford document that states this? As far as I can tell that it not true or not advertised as being true.

I haven't taken a fwd to the strip in a long time so I'll probably suck at launching. My first fwd at tbe strip was in my '93 Geo Storm GSi and it was hitting 17.1s at 5800ft and with an exhuast/intake, custom header and a couple tweaks to the timing it ran a 15.999999999 once but usually still hit 16 flats so at sea level I might've squeezed in a 14.9. Not bad for an Isuzu powered car with 140hp stock but maybe closer to 160 when I sold it.
