Okay,,,,,so tell me, where is the line then? I can see e-85 helping with detination problems because its a slower burning fuel than pump gas, thus it should work well with a high compresion engine, However, 110VP is also a slow burning fuel that takes care of detination BUT it makes more BTU's that E-85. When we ran methanal not ethanal in a race car it took twice the amount of fuel to make a bit less power than we could have made with race gas(without nitro methane).It wasnt consistant, we had to rejet when the sun went down, or on hot days ect. The benefit was that It burned cold, the car never got hot, we had to cover up the radiator to get it up to temp. Outside of the cost of e-85 vs race gas, or mabie a dry block setup may run cooler, whats the advantage to trying to get a tractor to run on ethanal? You cant just pour it in and go, theres a bunch of tuning and trial and eror involved. Is it work the risk of spending a high dollar motor to save half on your fuel cost? The companys that make race gas spend thousands of dollars on R&D. There job is to make your engine stay together and run hard. E-85 on the outher hand is regulated by the goverment! Im not trying to stir the pot here, this is just my 2 cents worth.If anyone can make it work better than race gas Im hear to listen!!
