E85 is great but mpg drops so much when you get into high mixtures of it. If you literally dont have a e85 station within 10 miles, then running 50% or more e85 is just crazy. Because more than likely you'll be filling up twice a week.
On pump gas I get about 21mpg, on a 20% e85 mix I get 19.5mpg, on about a 80% e85 mix I was getting 15mpg.
If I had to throw out a number I'd say a car running RB turbo with e85 mixture would not be able to break 500whp. It would break 500wtq easily.
have to disagree...you can get 500 Hp with E85/meth if you use the backend flash 3.5 bar N20 and up your additive to 80. I had a coolmist tank and had huge issues with my meth tank (huge amounts of air) and I hit 513 Hp and that was with my meth flow at 50-60%......I have a devils own meth kit (no leaks with SS & 4-AN) and I will be going on the Dyno here very soon within a week or so....will report back.
Just noticed you said with just E85, in that case I agree....without meth it would be hard to get 500Hp I would imagine.
