Re: [DML] Re: Using Ethanol-blended fuel

I personally have done a lot of research on ethanol and have used it in my
lawnmower, which worked well, as I didn't produce enough to test it in my
Daytona. I'm not an expert on the subject but I'm good at chemistry and have
done a good deal of research on this. Ethanol is essentially pure grain
alcohol or PGA. I have seen alcohols break down rubbers and plastics but I
haven't seen anything to suggest that it would corrode or eat metals.  They
put in a little gas to pure ethanol to prevent people from drinking it then
dilute it down further later. B12 which is mostly acetone is stronger than
ethanol or at least more corrosive. I am planning on testing parts in the D
fuel system in regards to its resistance to ethanol. E85 doesn't require as
much modification to the fuel system as most people think, thats why its 15%
gas and 85% ethanol. The 15% gas gives it the combustibility needed to
remain usable when cold. I don't think that its an unrealistic idea of using
E85 or even 100% Ethanol there are some things that need to be changed but
nobody has done research as to what exactly will need to be changed. I now
have an EFI system in my car and I have the old fuel system still attached
to the old engine. When I get around to testing with Ethanol I will be sure
to let you guys know what I come up with.
