E85 changed from state to state and what time of year it is, I'm from Iowa and our octane on it is 107 with no less than 75% ethanol but no more than 85%, not all the ethanol comes from Corn ours doesn cause that is all our state grows, and we have 2000 acres of corn on our farm so its good for us lol, but i did find out that the state of Colorado will buy back old Coors Beer and they turn that into fuel, just something to throw out there lol

Thumbs up

I just wanted to throw out one more thumbs up for E85. I have about 15k miles on my 2002 WRX daily driver running E-85 with only one complaint. Cobb hasn't unlocked the cranking enrichment map for the 2002 so it won't start in the in the winter (below about 45F) on E-85.

On a bone stock WRX (except for pink injectors and walbro) I got 226WHP on a mustang dyno with E-85 versus 205WHP with a pump gas tune.
