Yeah, I might look at going back to straight 98 and see what I can get out of it.

e85 at $1.69/l is ridiculous Equivalent of $2.20/l since it uses 30% extra fuel.
I saw ulp91 for 78c/l yesterday.
pulp98 is 94.7c at Costco, 99.9 at United and 1.03-1.15 at BP.

The simultaneous downtrend in crude has coincided with an upturn in the price of alcohol which means the delta between petrol and ethanol has grown.
You couldn't write some of this shit!

I will have to price a 200L drum of Shell Race Blend E85 and see how much a litre it is now just for fun. I have gone back to BP98 with the current version 1 tune at 18psi boost. You certainly can feel a 10psi drop in boost pressure in the performance of the car. As the boost is raised in future versions, it should feel better. I am enjoying being able to just go down the road to fill up with 98 and getting 10.2 L/110km is a large difference compared to 16.4 L/100km with the E85. To fill up with E85 required me driving to and from the closest United servo with E85 which was 50 km round trip. At 16.4 L/100, that meant I used 8.2L ($13.90) of fuel just to fill up. The closest BP servo is a 10km round trip i.e. 1L ($1.34) of 98. The extra range of 200kms a tank is also handy for going for a drive and enjoying the car.
