Nicole from Propel Fuels sent me a email with a list and their is also going to open one on 1st St. at the 76 Gas station.
San Jose 76
1002 N 1st St.
San Jose, CA

San Jose will have 4 pumps with E85 after they are all open. Not bad, but I mentioned to her the eastside(Alum Rock/McKee Rd.) would also like to see some E85 pumps
nice

Well its going to be out of my 04wrx injectors. Do you think you can get in touch with them to see how much I will get. Maybe I can send it in before buying the injectors and use the credit towards the 1300cc injectors

I believe you get $40/injector for those, but it would be best to check with them directly.

Thanks

The stock fuel pump CANNOT be used with E85. This is because the stock pump is externally lubricated which means the petroleum in the 91 lubricates the pump and keeps it cool-to keep the motor from burning up. E85 is 71-93% alcohol which is a dry liquid. Most aftermarket pumps are internally lubricated so they have basically a mini cooling system built in to them so they will last longer in ethanol based fuels. As for injectors you need bigger ones. The way alcohol burns is weird but basically you need more fuel per air than before in order to get a sufficient burn during the combustion cycle and the stock injectors are capable of upping the flow. You don't have to go with 1000cc injectors if you plan on staying stock some 650cc injectors should be enough
