CALLING ALL e85 UT guys on here!

My work is having me work in Bountiful in 2 weeks and I live down in Springville. I will be at the O'Reilly Auto on 519 W 750 S, Woods Cross. While I am working up there, I'll be in a hotel, and I was just curious as to if any of you guys up there know of a good motel/hotel that is safe and also close to a E85 pump?

I'm new to the whole E-85 thing. I'm getting tuned in 2 weeks at Racing edge, my 2006 wrx has pretty much become a dedicated track car. Would it be easier to get a hold of e-85 or 110? I live in WVC.

Is it better going with 110 over e? Which one would be better for racing at the track and would be a lot better for my engine? Sorry for the newb questions. :P I do have a new set of injectors and walbro fuel pump which I heard would be needed for the change.

E85 has inert cooling properties that 110 doesn't have, similar octane. Availability sucks if you live anywhere but happy valley. Miller does have fuel at their track, last I check E85 was not available there. Make sure your injectors AND your fuel pump are rated for the fuel you plan on running, walbro 255's are not technically rated for E85. I've ran one for years but it's still not rated for it.


Hope this helps

I've got to get rid of at least 5 gallons of e85 by 10AM Friday morning. I've got 6 cans and need at least one can for an ATV trip tomorrow at Noon.

Who wants a great deal on some E85 (e70 from Orem)?

Can I have a tune for 91 and for e85 and have an access port that will allow me to switch between the two if I'm unable to be around an e85 station?

The problem is you don't want to go switching very often. But Yes.

Awesome. Don't plan on it. Just for emergency situations where I have to go somewhere where I can't get e85!!

I want to get a tune. How would I go about doing this!??

I was goign to suggest for EMERGENCY only. A great way to kill your car. switch maps with no idea of how much 91/E85 in your tank and start burning around....

So I'm probably going to switch to e85. Not looking forward to loading my car up with fuel every time I head to the track, but I'm hoping to at least make the hp to make me competitive in TT3 going to have to run slicks too. All things considered I did ok last time considering my car felt slower then a stock sti (George from ziptie can attest) and I was running street tires. Have any of you run e85 making around 400awhp at the track all day? How much fuel did you burn through? Just trying to get an idea of what will be required to see if it is realistic to be able to haul enough with.

You can do a remote tune with either one of us, or find someone local. Be advised you'll need a fuel system at minimum to run E85.

Zizux, Just take the amount of race gas/pump gas you normally go though and multiply it by 1.3. It's roughly 30% more demand. Or you could do the math for the fuel system consumption.

Also I think I have an aftermarket pump. I was told not to do a remote tune with my setup.

I don't even know what that that has to do with anything.

I still suggest tune for 1 fuel and leave it. Find out were the e85 pumps are and live your life knowing that's where you fill up. I kept 30 gal on hand at home JUST IN CASE. I tell people the power is great but it's a life style change not a fuel choice. Changing maps and pumping fuels back and forth is a bad idea. Even when you are empty you are not dry. You leave 1 gal of 91 in your car, then fill up wiht E then you drive around and leave 1 gal of e/91 in your car and fill up with 91? that's a bad bad idea man. I always have guys I flash with E85 base maps run a couple tanks of E through just to have a good consistant fuel.

Then only time I would ever flash a 91 map over my E would be bcause I couldn't call anyone to bring me some fuel from my garage (which I have done before).
