It's an alcohol based fuel mixed with gasoline which in essence is like race fuel only cheaper!

closest one is downtown manhattan for me.

doesn't seem like much of an improvement if you're already running meth anyway. last thing i need is more midrange torque

E85 has 85% ethanol and e10 has 10% ehtanol... Almost all NY gas has 10% enthanol in it... You can see a lil label on all the gas pumps next time u fill her up stating the gas contains 10% ethanol.

Closest ive found so far is on sunrise highway past JFK.. Getty station.

The closest bets for E85 are in long island or Westchester.

Best E85 search site I've used: http://alternative-fuel.findthedata.org/

Just select Ethanol gas under Fuel Type & add a location in. Just make sure to not select a Municipal/Gov't owned gas station

Within in 10 mile radius:
  • Brooklyn - Nothing
  • Queens - 3 (1 in New Hyde, 2 in Rockville Centre)
  • Bronx - 1 (1 in New Rochelle)
  • Manhattan - Same 1 E85 station as Bronx

Didn't bother searching Staten or Long Island, but there's a few. Just a heads up, E85 has prob. switched to Winter Formula which is closer to the minimum ethanol content, E70 (70%)
