A free tank of E85! Was just given a $50 gas card to a local gas station which has E85.

Currently E85 is the best option, but E100 would be better.

methanol, it'll also give you more HP but less MPG.

I don't have a local station offering E85. Have to go out of town. This month the price differential with gasohol is only 15%. so I'm back to using gasohol. I drove 8400 miles in April and May using only E85. During that time my savings was about 8% on a cost per mile calculation.

If you can buy it right, enjoy it.

krzysiek_ck, great point! E100 would be better! Obviously the couple of other people on this thread have never tried E85 or they'd of noticed the benefits of it right off the bat like we did.
