As a result of the high fuel prices recently I'm beginning to see a fuel called E85 becoming available in the area (85% ethanol and 15% gasoline). I haven't been able to find out the octane rating as yet but I'm wondering what the effects, positive or negative, might be on our cars i.e. fuel system components, pumps, filters, fuel lines, detonation, etc. if it were used. Thanks for any light you might be able to shed on this subject.
