It shows how much less you get on my window sticker. They dealer put the window sticker in my glove box and I was looking at it just the other day and it was showing like 100 miles less on a tank of E85 versus Gas.

Yeah, can't get it around here but from what I understand you get less MPGs... So, no thanks...

 

Power>fuel economy. :lol:

 

And at least for my driving with the truck tuned for premium, E85 is actually cheaper when you calculate cost per mile so long as its 75 cents or more cheaper than premium. The reduced range is a drag but most of my driving in the truck is in town these days.

Use E-85 and say good bye to your fuel mileage. I've heard of 10-20% fewer MPG.

 

Yep, but it's worth it if you have a quick need for some extra ponies. I downloaded an iphone app that shows stations that have E85. I may run a tank through just to see what it's like.

Here is the section on my window sticker I was talking about.

And then I found this online that stated 12 city/17 Hwy for E85:

I tryed it, didn't notice any more power. I went from 17.5 mpg to 13.3 hand calculated. On the freeway (3in bl/front air damn removed). It was $1 cheaper a gallon for e85 vs reg.
