Camaros could be made to run on E85 easily.
Why do you think the cars in the DynoMax shootout use E85 exclusively?

lol, thats funny. He is right you need to actually read instead of just posting the poppy cock you hear floating around the media. This is exactly why the media sucks so bad. They say shit, people listen and it gets stuck in their brains. In turn people hear a different truth and it is to late at this point becuase their point of view is already tarnished.

We too have read the book at my house...Nice, easy read. BTW only $17 from Amazon. Had it by the pool on vacation a few weeks ago and several people asked if we were from MI just based on the book choice? Would no one outside of MI be interested It would help GM if more people outside of the auto industry/Detroit would read it!

We use regular gas because E-85 is not readily available. I have only seen 2 stations that carry it in the last 2 years I have had my Silverado, and they are no where near my home or work.

Ditto. The only ones here in Michigan have been the local Meijers stations, and it's a wash either way between unleaded and e85. So for us it's not a matter of availability, but price.

But now since 87 has gone above e85 again, I can see that changing for a few people. The rest are just lemming retards that jumped on the green train for the little badge on the bumper.

They are trying to get rid of E85 here in Tejas. Tortilla wars. (sounds like a joke but it's not lol).

In Mexico people buy stack of corn torts on the way home. It's a staple.

I like Hydrogen potential more. We need Nuke and wind to make it with high voltage. There needs to be like a promitory point, a shore to shore chain of Hydrogen stations.

E85 is like rotgut the engines don't last near as long as on good Iraqi or Iranian swill (yes I am spoiled being near a coastal refinery). Maint costs higher than Hydrogen.

The closest E85 station I know of is 60 miles from here. Drive to the station and back...oh wait, it's on a military base...

That's cool and all, but they do need to make more stations, I've seen a number of E85 vehicles around here.

I wonder if it would work with old paper products? Could save the news print industry singlehandedly!

If they can make it use pine needles and grass clippings then I'm gonna be the local Jed Clampett!

Now all we need is a Camaro that runs on that!
