It should help boost the octane. I put 3/4 tank of regular and the rest e85. My car seems to be running fine. But i havent got on it with this shit gas.

Shut your tune off and drive very gently. You should be fine.

If you are FBO set your tune to bypass or off. Keep it out of boost with light throttle and you will be fine. Even better if your tuner has a boost shut down that would be better.

If you mix 87 with e85 your octane will be more than high enough. If you are worried about it simply do not go WOT or heavy throttle. Since gas is rationed right now drive under all light load conditions and you would have nothing to worry about.

There isn't a fuel shortage, it's that the stations don't have power to pump it. As more get power back, things will get back to normal.

I had a idiot gas attendant put 87 Oct in my fbo cobb 335 one time. Cobb told me to stay out of boost till it was all used up and go back to stock map. If you stay out of boost, you will conserve fuel anyway.

Does the Cobb Valet map turn boost off or just add a rev limiter?
