Lol, "thats funny right thar, I dont care who you are". I wish as much as the next OPEC terrorism hating American Patriot to get off of Eastern oil dependance as the next guy, but getting 100miles less per tank while driving the same speeds and the exact same route is enough for me to thumb my nose at E85 until gas goes back over $5.00/gallon. Right now, I am plotting the takeover of the auto industry with my diesel/electric idea... As soon as a bundle of cash falls into my lap.

I have to wonder if the heat of the southwest is a factor here.

Dang well could be, lows for last/this week dont go below 79F, and hi's have ranged from 90-105F. I can tell you that its darn uncomfy driving to work at 5:30am with the a/c off and getting severe swamp *** before I step foot in my shop!

Turn on the A/C...no amount of gas is worth feeling like that.

That was a 1 time limited thing there, it wont happen again!! On a different note, I wonder if you put a small amount of nitromethane in E-85 if TE would go up enough to match gasoline.... Im willing to test it if someone ca supply the nitro! BOOM!!

Nitromethane has a 1.7:1 air fuel ratio. Since it provides its own oxygen for the most part it might be a cool thing to add to the mix. Just remember that Nitro is more explosive than TNT.

If your engine starts knocking with nitro it won't last long.
