the above is probably all true.. but wanted to throw another thing ive heard with switching between the 2.. If the vehicle has a lot of miles on it and only run Regular Gasoline through it all its life I would be leary of suddenly throwing E-85 into it. Have heard and read alot of reports about how e-85 will strip the varnish off the fuel system, valves, cylinder walls ect ect. gasoline leaves behind when its run through. When it strips that off it can plug up the fuel filters, injectors, and supposedly leave the burned deposits that were stripped from the cyl walls and valves in the cylinder..

But like I said thats the biggest thing ive heard about e-85 in flex fueled vehicles.. dont know how true it is. but wanted to throw it out there..
