i see e85 mentioned in a ton of these forums, is there a advantage to you guys running e85? I live in a VERY rural area in pennsylvania and just a very select few gas stations carry it , so my one question is why run it and in my case second if i decide to try it with e85 pumps being scarce around here it means id be frequently going back and forth from 87 to e85, plus ive heard yes e85 is cheaper but you dont get the fuel mileage out of it
Hey fellas. New to the site. Just picked up a new 2017 Sierra 4.3 Ecotec3 a few weeks ago. As you can see by the pic, I wasted no time in sprucing her up. I did a ton of research on this new V6 prior to buying, and decided to give it a try. Anyway...Ive read alot (mostly from GM sources) talking about the performance benefits with with using E85 in this particular engine. The numbers are impressive, but I remain skeptical. Everything I've ever been told about Ethanol in flex fuel motors, is "stay away". The long term damage on metal components just isnt worth it. But I'm being led to believe that is no longer an issue with this new V6? Open to any and all suggestions. Keep in mind, MPG is not a factor. My drive to work is 8 miles, and E85 here in Indy is a full $1 cheaper than unleaded per gallon.
Found this online when researching to convert my 02 Silverado over to E85. It is a little dated since it was published in 2011 but explains a good bit in detail. http://www.liquidsunenergy.com/learning/ppt/ice.pdf This is pretty interesting to see. This individual ran E85 almost 100 % in his Camaro with 250 quarter mile passes. This thing is clean inside. http://www.camaros.net/forums/showthread.php?t=143372&highlight=e85+wear+eric
