    That's the biggest problem with E85, it can be scarce. I'm right outside of Philly and there are only 2 stations that sell E85 in within a 30-45 minute drive.

    I live in the middle of corn country with two ethanol plants within 30 miles of my home. And yet, E85 is nearly impossible to find here. Bert
