100 years of oil companies strangling the world and tdioiler calls US farmers and NASCAR the mafia. Right dude, you're seeing the truth REEAAAL clear. And continues to lie to you about metal and plastic parts being damaged by ethanol, which has been proven false over and over again. Gasoline damages metal and plastic quite a bit. Ethanol does not. What a crok from tdioiler. Keep on lying.

And any car can use E-85 with a conversion kit that costs about 300 bucks. Yep, major modifications.

Most cars can't run E85 without major modifications. MPG goes to the dumps as well as most metal and some plastic parts.

And Nascar says they want it since it's a farm mafia organization.

BTW, NASCAR drivers do not use or ask for E-85! They are forced to use Sunoco Green E-15! They have no choice, it is the sponsored fuel they must use. Enough said...

69mustang,

Ethanol does NOT reduce engine life, even in a grocery getter.

If you run your van on E-85 you will get double the miles out of the engine. Of course, if the tranny can last long enough. At least your engine will last much longer. If you haven't been using pure e-85, then your tank and lines have petroleum gunk all over them. Introduce the E-85 one additional gallon per fill up, then once you get up to E-85, chsnge the fuel filter. It will be the last time you ever have to change it.

Ethanol is like a statin drug for your fuel system, and gasoline is more like eating a triple whopper every day.

Nascar drivers like it because it increases accelleration BTW.

Let them use all the ethanol they want. You have to remember, their engines just have to last 500 miles. I doubt they ever use the same engine twice. Reason being, that if they would have to change some part of the engine, or if they would need to bore the cylinder, I am sure there are rules for that, that would prevent them from using that engine.

The new official fuel of NASCAR is Sunoco Green E15.

If a race car is specifically designed for a special fuel then so be it. We don't drive race cars or at least I don't!

It certainly would be appropriate, since NASCAR evolved from the running of moonshine.

I would think that Sunoco is telling the team what they are getting. And the same fuel is supplied for the time trials as is supplied for the race.

This is cool, but none of my cars were built/designed for E-85

The amount of ethanol in E85 is higher in the summer than in the winter. The Handbook for Handling, Storing, and Dispensing E85 lists the minimum ethanol content for the 3 Classes (Table 3, page 7) and Appendix A has a table listing the Class per month for each state.

If you run tests on E85 you will find that the actual alcohol percentage is all over the place. Many times it is not 85% alcohol but a much lower blend which will run richer in a vehicle tuned for straight E85.
