    As to running E85 - your tune needs to be adjusted to run it, you'd like need to upgrade your injectors as well, keep in mind, you lose MPG using it, typically around 30% at a minimum

    I've run it in my Shelby for 8 years, I get about 10 mpg in mixed driving and 14 hwy, keep in mind my car is heavily modded and makes good power, a stock gasoline Shelby of a similar vintage is rated 20 mpg hwy.
