E85 is a renewable fuel source that is also environmentally friendly. Its performance is comparable to race gas at a fraction of the cost. Your engine will run cooler and your ETs will be less affected by atmospheric changes. E85 is not corrosive like methanol and does not leave carbon deposits like gas so maintenance is reduced across the board. With the proper tune-up, your oil stays looking like new.
Don’t forget to ask the team at TORQ8 about our E85 race fuel specific fuel pumps, injectors, fuel lines, flex-fuel sensors, fittings and ECUs!
What is the difference in ethanol and methanol?
Both fuels have excellent intake air charge cooling effect. Ethanol (grain or ethyl alcohol) is a biofuel made through by distilling renewable resources like corn, sugar cane and switch grass. Fuel ethanol is 180 proof when produced. 15% regular 87 octane gasoline is added to E100 to add a little lubricant as well as ease the initial cold startup. Methanol (wood alcohol) is produced through a chemical process. By its nature methanol is more corrosive and provides 35% less energy then E85 so you have to burn 35% more of it to make comparable power.
What type of performance can one expect when switching to E85?
E85 with its 105 octane rating and high tolerance to detonation is superior to premium pump gas and equal to and in most cases better than 110 octane race gas.
