Default E85 Ethanol

Cali gas is already E10.

E85.... Old Volvo don't care! It won't hurt anything. It burns very clean. I plan to run it once I turn up the boost. It's equivalent to high octane gas, but it lowers the MPG.

Sidestory: New cars can throw a lean code if FILLED with E85. I have a fuel tester at the shop. I had ONE modern car in the last couple years with a P0171 and P0172 and it was backfiring thru the intake lean. All checked out until I got the analyzer out and the fuel measured exactly 85% Ethanol.
