Any thoughts on e85 in the stock Miata fuel system? I know alot of people say its ok/not ok in the honda environments.... thoughts on the miata gaskets/lines etc?

Or are you running all your own line at this point?

I'd be tempted to run this on my build, just because its not a daily driven car and it has so many benefits.

I'm just concerned about it in a car that will spend time sitting between outtings.

I was on the clock and had to think of one quick to fill in the "find E85 near you".

I thnk there have been more murders between the two cities closest to me Balt-DC, than there is whole population of Knoxville.

Here in Hawaii they're running E10 and nearly all if not all pumps for Unleaded gasoline. Even for marine use they're using E10 and it's eroding away at the boats gas tanks and seals so people are pissed. There is no octane increase for E10 unlike E85.

Are the injectors limiting you? Or could it be either the pump or the fuel, or both? I've made 150whp per 1000cc injector on multiple cars...

Probably not on E85. You need around %30 bigger injector to get the same amount of power from E85 vs pump gas. If he was running race gas he'd have enough injector.

500whp IIt's like a dream, I got 200whp from stock engine and I'm happy with that, for something around 400whp I'm building a honda but after this post I will sell my honda after I finish it and build my miata.

to be honest i dont remember. i was just in walmart one day waiting on my brother to get what he needed, so i just hung out around the magazines and glanced through like 4-5 of them. this wasnt too long ago so it might still be on the shelves somewhere.
i will swing by wallyworld here to see if its still there.
