Sorry I've heard from people that e85 can be bad because of the ethanol level and cause damage to the engine. Idk I didn't believe it because usually a lot of people will run e85 in their set ups and will be fine. I'm new to that trying to see what's really the answer

No worries, I wasn't attacking you, its just that there are a lot of stupid people spreading stupid rumors about it having absolutely zero knowledge of what it is, how it works, and the pros/cons.

What I would suggest is you don't listen to those people, and do your own independent research. There is SOO much info out about e85 all over the forums and the internet in general, that a simple search will yield enough hits to keep you reading for hours. In the end you can draw your own conclusions.

My conclusion, as well as my opinion, is its fantastic stuff and when treated and used right results in massive power gains and increased safety margin for the motor. At least when compared to our CA 91 ****. Those huge pro's outweigh the few minor cons that come with it.

Again, just my .02

I lived around 20miles away from a nearest E85 station for 2-3 years. I would just fill up my car and fill up 3-4 5gal of gas. Would last a week and a half with commuting and fun

Yeahh I have definately been seeing the rise of many switching to e85 and loving it. I have a buddy who loves his v8 muscle cars and he tried saying it will fry anything in my engine because well something about ethanol not being good. Never got anything else outta him. I am looking into it so hopefully and its a bit cheaper

Tons of subies are running it Vegas. We have like 170 pumps within the city that sells it. It doesn't like cold weather and your mileage goes to **** but otherwise it's extremely popular. I think Subaru of Las Vegas had only seen a few instances where there's been a buildup. Other than it being a pita to start in cold weather and making sure you don't drive too far away from a pump you'll like it
