I had filled up from a not all the way empty tank so that's why it shows that.

So you bought e85 and have e77 ?

Is this a flex fuel car ?

It is flex fuel and I put 10 gallons of 85 in a 12 gallon tank that had e10 for the last 2 gallons.

I just did some reading and it seems like you could run into a lean condition and that can lead to problems since you are on a 91 tune. Remember that it takes almost twice as much to burn E85 than it would regular pump gas. I would suggest going back to stock tune until you use up the e85, unless the computer automatically compensates for it? Tom please correct me if I am wrong.

Then again you already used 91E10 so it already has ethanol in it and car runs fine.... UGHH THIS IS SO CONFUSING.

You can actually see my air fuel ratio is well within safe limits for ethanol in the picture I posted as my car compensated for it.

Everything I am reading says you need upgraded fuel injectors and pump but this is on an evo forum that came up while googling. So I am assuming we should be fine since we already have parts to support E85.

If your car is a flex fuel car then you're fine to run it assuming your tuner did not remove that capability from the PCM.

makes sense! Hopefully tom does not remove anything from the PCM. Would still feel better if he thinks its ok.
