    Re: E85

    The trouble with E85 (other than the reduced energy/btu's it contains per volume) is that if your fuel system is not equipped to handle the alcohol (specifically the rubber-type seals/hoses and some other non-metallic pieces) they will eventually crack and/or degrade causing leaks, blockages or completely plugged orifices.

    E85 is a stupid idea. Burning food for fuel is a waste.

    Cool Re: E85

    This was just on Goss's Garage on Motorweek, E10 is all right,
    BUT E-85 is 85% alcohol and is ONLY recommended for E85 vehicles which
    are clearly labeled on the outside of the vehicle for E-85 !
    DO NOT USE ON OUR CADILLACS....
    also what C&C said above.
    Jesda and Jesda like this.
