hmm, so your doing great on e85 and even though you can run 22psi on gas you just dont want to and feel its unsafe? of course it is at 30* but what about running maybe 24psi on gas and only 20* for example? There’s huge debates about power on Nasioc with timing vs boost, seems like your a timing guy while im a boost guy. does colorado have 93?
i wouldnt mind running either but i could only run Aquamist and feel safe. $750 or $1000 is just not in the budget though!! plus there’s always that "chance" something could fail with correct mix, fail safe's and idk how i feel about that. from what ive read i would never mix my own! something happens when you mix meth and water that the meth has some chemical reaction or evaporates or something but point is you lose your correct 50/50 mix. summit racing by my house carries Devils Own brew and thats all id trust. many people have still blown their motors running meth so to me the benefit doesnt out weigh the risk.
whats so wrong about switching maps when you need to? i know you said you dont have time in your gas map but either way you must put the time in to be able to run gas/meth or just gas.
personally if it were me i have no problem running and making a e85 map, then waiting till i am super low on fuel and then switching the map and filling up with gas. i mean really, that switch over tank of gas may make you baby it a little till your 100% sure all of the e85 is out of the tank (or gas is 100% out if your switching back) but do you really think in that first 100 miles your gonna go all fast and the furious on the street and need all 400 of your horse power? like you said, its for trips and stuff. why do you need 400awhp to go snowboarding vs 300-350hp??
just keep your "summer" e85 map and make a good, safe, lower boost, low timing "winter" map and enjoy the money saving and fuel saving in the winter.
PS i hope you know E85 in the winter all over the US is NOT e85! its more like e70 so you might as well run gas in the winter anywho.
