There is a stage 2 '11 WRX running E85 near me who averages just over 20. I hoping with my 2.0 and bigger turbo, to stay out of boost. Im taking a road trip from STL to SFO starting in June, I plan to run E85, testing the quality, as I much as possible. Looks like only 2 or 3 tanks will be on 93. Ill be sure to update my post with my results.

Besides its worth it to me. I just did a turbo swap and needed a tune anyway. So for only $200 more I get an E85 tune! Easily worth it IMO.
