well finally ran through the barrel of 110 that I got 3 years ago.
im experiencing sticker shock now. cheapest I have found is 7.50/gal for 55 gal drum.
wondering if e-85 will work in a 11.5-1 motor with 280 cranking pressure.
thanks
Eric

I have heard good and bad on E85...its harsh on components from what I hear.I have a 88 thats 250psi static...I mix c12 and super unleaded and am happy with the results...C12 is right about 12 a gallon here.

airports don't sell 110 race gas, most generally they sell 100LL, there is a difference between the two

Well you found it cheaper then I did. They are at 438 plus taxes which according to my figures is 8.76 per gal. How come your not coming to Boonville afraid of my H? We are coming Fri because Judy wants to go through fleas. I can bring one if you are going to be around Fri.

That is for a barrel and I figure it at 50 gal so that might be wrong price per gal.

280psi cranking pressure is beyond the point of diminishing returns. That engine needs more cam to increase the amount of air/fuel mixture through the engine.
