Lazarus: I have had similar experience with E85; not at all like those who project mpg losses based on BTU calculations. No doubt, they've never even tried it.

I will say, even above "E50" I didn't see more than about a 15% loss. The main caveat I'd throw out there is to expect some cold start and driveability issues if you go above E50 in below zero F weather.
