Regular 89 octane - $3.39
E85 - $3.29

thats odd. here it's still .70 to 1.10 cheaper depending where you go.

Thought I'd chime in. When gas was high, Ethanol popped up everywhere in North West Detroit suburbs and the city. 5 stations within 10 miles of my house. From January to march this year, all of my local stations got rid of it. I bet they got stuck with it as the prices equalized.

If you search the S-series forums, there was a dude who with the help of the forum converted his SOHC engine to run 100% E85. All he had to do was add DOHC fuel injectors to handle the extra volume. He kept a fuel economy chart and what he was paying in gas. He lost mileage as expected but at 40-50c discount, he was saving money.

I have an extra SC2 intake manifold and fuel rail in my garage. I was all ready the swap the injectors in but, then the bottom fell-out of gas prices. Glad I didn't do it now. I am keeping the parts incase prices differ enough to make it worth my while.

Cheers!

In and around Detroit, MI there are plenty of gas stations with a E-85 pump. Even out in the rural areas you can find them at bigger gas/diner stations.
