Been on e85 exclusively for ~two years now. Had a miss on #3, changed plug, coil, all four injectors, no more miss. With two years on these injectors there was no buildup at all on the outside, although there may have been some kind of contaminate on the inside as I did have a miss. If time allows this weekend I'll clean the filters on them and see if anything comes out.

I do remember a thread about the buildup...and also remember it was mentioned the gunk may have come from a bulk fuel storage tank. Something about the binders in the tank leeching into the fuel.
