Is there a question? I will say this, there are certain parts in your fuel system that are not rated for E85. E85 will not hurt your engine, but it may foul up parts of the fuel system.

A full tank of E85 would require bigger injectors. They are correct to advise against it. What most N54 folks do is add a few gallons of E85 to a tank of mostly gasoline.
