So, who has used or uses E85 fuel?

I have no idea about this.

What does it do to performance? All I know it is much cheaper.

Thanks,

Gas mileage decreases about 25% so unless it is that much cheaper you are throwing money away. You do gain a little power but nothing significant.

For roughly 25% less mpg (which will take mine down to ~ 18 mpg highway or likely 15-16 mpg mixed), I wouldn't bother. Even if it's cheaper, doesn't make it a superior fuel. I'd stick to E10 (standard gas).

If you can find ethanol free gas use it.

I'd love to use this, but it's not widely available.

Because the ethanol lobby forces this down our throats, or gas tanks, so to speak
