On E85? 6mpg, maybe 15 if kept to the speed limit.

Running E85 on it with the stock engine? Man, in my country the folks already freaks out about the E25 :p

Well with 12.7 to 1 static compression and 10 psi from a turbo I don't really have a choice, either that or c16 fuel. E85 is cheaper, so I took that route.

From what I understand, you can get about 25% improvement running ethanol ONLY if you have compression ratio in the 14's!?! I'm trying to get my vehicles to around that compression and with torque cams to try increasing low end torque and fuel economy!! I also want to see about making my own fuel!!

With that static compression ratio you could try ethanol even without the turbo :D

I'm seeking to get my cars to around that compression and with torque cams to attempt increasing low give up torque and gasoline financial system!! I additionally want to peer approximately making my personal gas!!

Some dedicated-ethanol cars in Brazil resorted to high-compression pistons in order to achieve that. But actually there were other models with lower compression which ran well on ethanol. BTW one of the engines still regarded as the better suited to ethanol, the Renault-based Ford CHT engine, had a 12:1 compression ratio.

Interesting build. How's the performance though?
