I've seen some really good power being made with e85 setups on other cars. Its definitely not worthless....You do have to run humongous injectors and inject a shitload of it, but it burns cooler and has some good octane numbers. Imo not worth trying unless I can get it cheap as dirt at a local pump. I cant though.

That said, OP the search function is your friend: this **** has been discussed at length.
And to the newbs spouting off bullshit like "fwd better for traction", savington is right: GTFO

I was just curious to see who's running it. Basically a show of hands. People thought I cared about the tuning aspect. I personally know of 7 people running it and I know the guy that has tuned all their cars. Since I bought my Miata a little while ago, I was interested to see if guys in this world are using it.
