Default E85 Coming to a gas station in Vancouver, BC Canada

I have a very serious business opportunity to purchase a gas station in the Lower Mainland and wanted to conduct a survey to see what people in the area thought about being able to get E85 fuel out of a gas station pump without having to cross the border or buy drums or jerry cans. If you have a moment, please take some time to fill out this survey. It will help us solidify plans to bring in E85 to a gas station pump in the Greater Vancouver area.

https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/Fuel_Survey_2014

Thanks for your time

The survey doesn't have an option for New West and when you just write it in it still makes you pick another city to complete the survey...

Done. If it's a lot more expensive then buying a drum or 2 from marysville shell at a time then I still might buy from the USA.

I am new to the E85 fuel can you run 92 then grab a tank of E85 or do you need to strictly run E85? Yes I do know that your car has to be set up to run it in the first place.

I think I've heard of people having 2 tunes in their ECU's that they can switch back and forth between like you're saying.

If you have an ecu that is capable of utilizing an ethanol content sensor (lots of standalone ecus now, link, vipec, motec, haltech, pro efi, etc) then you can run whatever mixture of 92/e10 gas and e85. Ecu will do real time changes to fuel, ignition, and boost based on what the sensor is reading.

Just bought a ECU that supports a flex fuel sensor! Wooooo!

Any info on what kind of pricing we'd expect for e85?
