E85 may not be mainstream, but if it were added to GasBuddy for price posting it would also be out there to gain notice.

Yes, this has been suggested before, and in this discussion category, discussed as recently as three days ago, under the topic name: E-85

Discussion regarding "E-85"

Among other things, the moderators indicated in that link that: "Until E-85 becomes more widespread and gains popularity, it is still considered an alternative fuel not listed on GasBuddy."

This has been suggested numerous times. Since E85 and CNG and other non-traditional vehicle fuels are not common throughout the USA & Canada, I don't see them being added.

Yes, it's been suggested before. I'm not aware that it's currently being worked on, but in the meantime, a reasonable way to deal with tracking prices for non-supported fuel types is to find or create a topic in your local forum. Pick a meaningful title, use the initial post to clearly explain what it's for, and then separately post a follow-up message with the first example of prices you've spotted.

In the cornbelt, there is a substantial amount of stations offering it, to the point it is a mainstream fuel.

Also, E85 capable state vehicles it is mandatory to refuel with E85. Help us find the cheapest stations to help taxpayers save money. :)
