That is f*ckin cheap. With FP can i run this ? Dont even think nyc has this :/

mix 10-16-2010 05:46 AM

yeah with flashpro you can but just as simple as that. you have to get injectors and modify your fuel pump and get a custom tune if I am not wrong.

Strate L O S S 10-16-2010 05:48 AM

Ohhh ok. Thanks.

GlxyGry06Si 10-16-2010 06:25 AM

but with e85 you dont get quite the same gas mileage. i believe its 20% worse but the power you can extract is enormous and like the op showed. Cheap ass F.

cambodianricer 10-16-2010 06:36 AM

wow, i might switch even if im not boosted

VitViper 10-16-2010 06:44 AM

I'm not sure how much Premium fuel is in your area, but if E85 was 1.70/gal hear, given the gas mileage losses... I'd be saving maybe... oh... $4-6 fill up. And then you have to deal with it eating your aluminum parts away (especially the fuel pump issue).

it depends how much power you're making. I'm all motor and all i did was change my injectors. i'm still using the stock fuel pump.

for gas mileage, it's about 30% worse. with E85, your car will drive a lot smoother and you'll get more HP out of your motor.

boosted cars get the best out of E85. they'll gain like 50HP while n/a cars only gain around 10HP

from what i've seen here on 8th, all the peeps who had ran E85 are having the same fuel pump issue and also their fuel gauge doesn't read correctly. this usually occurs after a month of driving, from what they have mentioned.

i know it's still early to say, but i think it might have something to do with the walbro fuel pump. the other users have that fuel pump. i'm using the stock fuel pump. also my car is driven every single day; it never sits for more than a day.

as time progresses, any problems or news about my car on E85 will be reported.

ggfa5 10-17-2010 03:21 AM

interesting.

VitViper 10-17-2010 03:35 AM

Last time I checked the Walbro didn't have it's own level sender... that is on the fuel cage IIRC and I don't see what the fuel pump would have to do with the cage sitting in E85.

Strate L O S S 10-17-2010 04:23 AM

Link to injectors ? What kind is used ?

93 is $3.30 cents here, I wouldnt convert but holy damn thats cheap.

You're right Vit. The sender sits in the fuel cage

aLmk 10-17-2010 05:08 PM

Didn't supa ninja create a solution for the sender issue?

DUI Elite 10-17-2010 05:12 PM

Not a permanent one.

Yeah, my daily driver is on E85. It does not have a problem with any of the aluminum parts on my fuel system. Going on 2 years strong...

Most all motor setups on here do not need a walbro.

If your daily driver isn't an Si, then that is irrelevant.

That's not the point.

The guy who tuned my WRX has his STI tuned to E85. He said it required larger injectors and gets crappy mileage overall but the power increase is worth it.

JWen84 10-17-2010 09:34 PM

wow that's dirt cheap for gas..lucky u lol
