    Do you think that High or Low? Ethanol (e85) is $2.02 a gallon here usually. But it is on the rise. I couldnt believe my eyes when I seen $2.45 at a meijer the other day for e85. Kroger still has it for 2.26 though.

    92 Eagle Talon TSI AWD Auto = 10.61@127.8 (1.4 60ft)
    94 3000gt SL 8:1TT 5spd getrag = 11.87@123 (1.8 60ft)
    91 3000gt VR4 13gs = 11.61@115 (1.59 60ft)

    Its 2.58 around here. I wouldn't run it even if I could. The rarity of it in thie area is one factor, and the fact that sure you can make more power and its cheap, you also get much less fuel mileage out of it so it saves you nothing.

    We dont drive fucking Honda Insights, gas mileage is probably not even on the top 10 for my concerns for driving this platform.

    For most of us these cars are a hobby and I at least, could justify spending a bit more money every year on fuel for the sake of my hobby.

    If there was more than 4 (YES FOUR) E-85 pumps in WA state I would probably run it and run 20 psi on my 9b's.
    93 R/T - Modded, Full Suspension, Full Exhaust, Quaife Diff, Turbo brakes, Alpine/Boston Sound One of 25
    98 VR-4 - Billet 13t's, Downpipe, Blitz EBC, Ohlins R/T coil overs, SCE center differential, SCE oil pan, Pampena braced trans, TEC Rear Strut Bar, Custom Front Strut Bar, Camber Arms, Alum Driveshaft, 2" Koyo, Maximal oil cooler, SAFC2, Defi Gauges, RC 550's, Supra Pump, Skillard Splitter, Hardpipes, XYZ 14" front brakes/Carbotech, 255 Dunlop Z2's, AMR 18x9's, Alpine/Infinity/JL Sound. One of 13

    3SNG15 Best overall

    Is there an "Arnold" tax on your gas?

    Damn expensive.

    E85 is everywhere near me. Close to 30 stations within 40 miles. I'm still not about to mess with it. I have enough problems the way it is!

    hell ya!

    In the end its about the same price actually, but you can get a lot more power safely, and it burns cooler which is a nice bonus.

    Last year i got 26mpg on 93, this year i got 21mpg on e-85.
