    All in all I will agree that the gas will get more and more ethanol
    as the years go by. This is to get ahead of the market and save the supply we have in the US. I think they will try and rule the world one day with there petro reserves

    Looks like Tom has it all figured out for the pump gas dealeo so get a turbo and just bring it to Tom

    Travis Tom called you an ass

    ALCOHOL IS FOR DRANKING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! It makes no heat(heat=energy) milks oil, takes 2 to 3 times as much to make same power as gas,need lots of air, kills lube to valves and does not increase octane, octane is the ability to say in a liquid form longer alcohol kills that. The only thing it's good for is running consistant in your dragster at the strip or in your turbo motor for a little cooling and say it's on pump gas. Put good gas in it turn up the boost and say it's just fast. Drink alcohol and if you cut your finger on a beer tab you can put some on it too.

    briggs gna lose alot of customers then give it 2 more yrs and you wont be able to find a 100% gasoline station anymore in biz.people are genetically cheap and will always price shop even for fuel. your average driver knows nothing bout ethanol at all, all they know is joe blow's gas station is 10cents cheaper a gallon and that's where they buy fuel.there's no theory involved, all ya gta do is look around and it becomes appearent that supply and demand will keep ethanol in fuel for decades to come. i've been to countless gm seminars and classes where engineers will tell ya the same.

    honestly, we're getting ****ed at the pumps, i k



    now it, yall know it, but if they go 15% ethanol like they plan too before summer, i'm stoked as long as fuel prices either stay the same they are now or get cheaper.
    for boosted guys like me, ethanol is a blessing. its not corrosive like methanol(dont confuse them, nuthn alike), but the ethanol let's me push boost levels to insane pressures most guys would stand in awe of.we were putting 28lbs to pumpgas 91 octane, think bout that, its crazy but it worked/works, made huge power.i'd bust a nut if someone put in a e85 near me, be in hog heavennnnn

    WE HAVE ETHANOL FREE FUEL ALSO.

    buts its not every wherehow long will it last?

    how high do you think premium pump gas will get?

    4-4.50 -5.00 even higher it will always keep going up....


    ethanol is hard on fuel systems.


    i feel ya bro just asking what you guys think Pump fuel is like and where its headed?


    mixing Pump and Race is great idea.

    ill leave Av gas for Planes.


    i have no idea what fuel will run a gallon?

    we will be getting our Drums from Gearhead and it will depend on the ocatne we need when we Dyno the motor?

    im sure 7-8 a gallon.

    then mix with Premium and cut it down some more if we can if not Fock it thats what its all about

    nothing about boating is cheap

    we might can hunt around and find it cheaper like Coby under 6 a gallon



    keep saying what you want about good fuel in your neck of the woods and i will keep saying it will all go to SHIT before its over then WHAT?


    this is just for discussion so no one get their feathers Ruffled

    Tom says the Ethanol adds octane,i call Bullshit!!!!!!! yep, you know more bout this being a paint body guy compared to a master driveability tech lmao, you're cluelessssss its my job to know these things
    all my stuff runs worse with it bet theyre lean running motors from the sounds of it

    my Harley Motors all run worse.i take it they have carbs, efi motors adjust to it by afr

    My motor is set-up for Premium(good Gas)
    my wifes Motor is set-up for premium
    2 of dads bikes are premium users only!

    he has 1 that is mainly stock and it pings with Premuim.lean ping, needs more fuel

    sure we can adjust things but to only lose more and more power!!!!!!!!

    shit my bike was set-up on Kill for 93 and Know i have to add Octane booster and everything but the kicthen sink to get it to run right.

    so if ethanol adds octane WHY!!!!!!! Because ethanol has an octane rating of 113, adding 10% ethanol to gasoline raises the finished fuel's octane rating by 2 or 3 points, improving the fuel's performance.


    all of our vehicles get worse and worse gas mileage with this Pump gas ethanol content Bullshit


    just throwing this post out there as many of you are on this pump gas frenzy and spending a lot of money to set up your new motors on Kill for pump gas that is nothing like Yesteryear


    i have many more things that i have personally seen, smelled and tasted that Prove this pump gas Gas we are getting is Junk. i've gotta ethanol tester that shows ethanol content in fuel, never been able to drink any and tell ya lol


    Will it get worse? they're goin to 15% soon nuff, added power, but ya gta add fuel
    will they water it down more?

    something to think about and i want some of your .02 worth?
    my point is, if you dont understand the fuel, and how to adjust afr to make it work, than its all assumptions. sure pumpgas has a small tuning window, but a good tuner can find that window quikly before hurting things, a bad tuner cant.any tom/dick/or harry can tune with racegas, so easy a caveman can do it kinda deal, hugeeeeee tuning window.

    I have a bud that owns a drag strip and he is selling race fuel cheaper than anyone around! Any octane. I am picking up a barrel just to save a few bucks! 7.00 is what they sell 112 for at the bulk plant but, I think his is around 5.80 a gallon!
