Help needed

So my tank was low on gas, and I decided to fuel up with E85 instead of 93 because I had heard E85 makes you faster. Now my car is making strange sounds and feels low on power. Any ideas?

I have read that a non-recirculating BOV and a manual boost controller can help in your situation.

If you don't have the money for those items right now, I would suggest pushing harder on the accelerator in the interim. That will give you a better fuel/air mixture with the E85.

He's defiantly not serious.

Sounds like your flux capacitor need to be set back to 85, if its set to 93 then your gonna need to reset that... If you cant figure it out I know a guy who can help. his name is marty works for a little shop in so-cal called mcflys auto....

**what if April fools day was a joke and we've all been the butt of the joke for the last hundred years?**

I fueled up with E85 once while running off of 91. Nothing bad happened thank god, but it scared the shite out of me
