I have a Flex Fuel vehicle “Yellow gas cap” that is designed to burn E-85. The only difference I see running E-85 is the reduction in mileage. There is no noticeable performance drop running E-85. I have begun doing a “miles per dollar (MP$)” comparison of the various fuel types that my vehicle can burn and have determined that E-85 needs to be at least $ 0.60 cheaper than the next best fuel in a “miles per dollar (MP$)” comparison. Currently E-85 sells for $2.599, the next best fuel E-10 89 octane mid-grade which sells for $3.359.

Interestingly enough, on my car at least, fuel grade does make a difference. The conventional wisdom is that so long as you use the minimum required fuel grade recommended by the manufacturer using a higher fuel grade will not improve your mileage. My results tend to disprove that at least for my car, my driving style, and my local traffic levels. The Miles per dollar (MP$) cost are all within a penny of each other for E-10 91 octane premium, E-10 89 octane midgrade and E-85 at about 6.55 miles per dollar with the E-91 and E-10 91 fuels giving the best MPG.
