I can't see them buying off on a custom fuel system that burns the car to the ground or even headlights that blinded on-coming traffic though, that certainly seems safety related to me. Here's an example of what we would consider a safety upgrade causing a claim denial:

We digress though. I'm still wondering, with Ben's attention to detail and documentation, how a malfunction of that magnitude could have happened. I almost wonder if E85 ate through something... I've seen a few people demonstrate that not all fuel components are capable of withstanding the elevated ethanol content.
i dont know what happened here but i kind of use this thread for information purposes. I dont like ethanol. Long term use of that stuff can be very harmful. Dry rots everything and is one of the most harmful things to our water supply when it comes out of the exhaust by condensation.
