Question Most Accurate E85 Tester

What's a more accurate E85 tester than Quick Fuel's E85 Tester?

Quick Fuel's E85 Tester has worked for me the handful of time's I've used it. With that said, I might just be crazy with something I noticed recently.

I filled up with E85 a few weeks ago, and it was E80 per the tester and after about 20 minutes of waiting. While cleaning out my garage over the weekend, I found the test tube in a box that I forgot about. I looked at the percentage and it was now around E73.

I found the tube on it's side, so could it just be a case of some of it spilling? Could it be that I didn't screw on the cap tight enough and x evaporated? Either way, I'm curious if anyone else is using another E85 tester.

Other than sending the fuel to a lab you are SOL

The “baby bottle” method is fairly accurate, follow the instruction carefully, use a turkey baster to fill to the line drop by drop to get accurate proportions, and after shaking like hell wait at least 5 minutes.
