There are a couple gas stations in town that pump E85. I know there is a Kangaroo Express out on Highway 27 that has it and a BP near the mall.

I have an E85 pump about 15 minutes and for that I've been greatly considering Vince's E85 tune but I don't know how comfortable I feel with it yet. So I haven't given it a shot. Might look into it more after today since I'm done with finals today and I get a bunch of free time back

I ran E85 well over a year ago and it was fine. I made decent power too. Think I ran 13.7 with E85 headers and intake. That was with a terrible 2.1 60"

I stopped using it though because I questioned running E85 in an engine that wasn't designed for it.

This is the reason why I wouldn't do it. Personally I think there's a reason why GM didn't design the motor to run E85 from the factory

I heated up the area with a blow dryer.


And fishing line

Do you know someone with one? It really helps to heat up the area. Maybe if it is hot enough, sit the car in the sun for a few hours.

can't tell if that's an emblem, or cut out of the vinyl. I would cut it out.

Imo I dislike when people put additional badges on their car to let people know what it is...I know we have the emblems from the factory but if you like it that's all that matters
