...I was just emphasizing the fact that although HP might not decline with E85-vs.-gasoline, the Fuel Economy certainly does.

...that is, unless (as you correctly state) the engine can actually "use" the higher octane value of E85, such as is possible with turbocharged they're "designed" to run on E85 and gasoline.

...and, just having a turbocharger is NOT enough, there must also be both wide-range sensors and programming capable of handling both gasoline (E0) and gasohol (E85).
