I travel quite a bit and encounter different grades of fuel. Especially when I travel through areas with air quality restrictions. I have been tempted to buy your tune but I am under the impression that fuel quality needs to remain constant in a tuned car. Is this true?

The way I set my knock sensors settings you can run 91-93 octane on the same Tune with no issues , 87 would need to be a separate Tune

With Tuning with me you get Free Unlimited Custom Tune updates so just tell me what your trying to do and I will do my best to make it work with the Tune

Can't do much with it, too variable in mixture.

Pump E85 could be 20 - 85, usually in the 40 - 80 range. But one tank could be 80, the next 60, etc..

If only thats what your getting , just because it says X% of E doesnt mean your getting X% and you dont know what octane fuel is being added to it so the octane out come is ??????????

If you feel you have to run E fuels then just run , I wouldnt tune for it

Yeah, we've had LONG discussions about it here.

Those who WANT to tune and play with a tuner to load different tunes (not avail. afaik for std. Focus, different setup for ST's) have to do testing when they fuel up - a PITA.

What the pump charges you for is all you can be sure of with those variable options, since the mixture isn't regulated by law (unlike other fuels).

Got 78% Flex Fuel at my local pump CONSISTENTLY. Go to a local station and go there with an empty tank. Once you've done this at least twice then pull the Alcohol percentage from the sensor through OBDII. Lowest I had was 67% and I never again went to that station. Best way of finding out if your local station is pumping out low grade flex fuel.

Just use Flex Fuel for a cheap alternative to 93 but don't tune with it unless it's from a barrell like Tom has said before. Try my method above and see what your local pump is ACTUALLY putting out. If it's trash then try another station.
