This is a video of a 2000 Chevy Tahoe which was run almost exclusively on E85 Ethanol for over 100,000 miles. The amazing thing is that this is NOT a Flex Fuel vehicle-it was not Flex Fuel ready from the factory. They probably used an E85 conversion kit, but do not mention this in the video. The Tahoe's engine was taken apart and inspected. The results prove that E85 will not harm a standard engine, fuel pump, fuel lines and other components of the fuel system. The results showed that the engine was in excellent condition. So we highly recommend that everyone use E85 however we do not recommend running a standard vehicle without an E85 converter kit.

Ken Block on His Use of E85 Ethanol
I talked with Ken Block at his Gymkhana Two premiere and he surprised me
with a green tint to the conversation. This is for my green racing blog:
Ethanol Blended Fuels and Small Engines
Bobby Cleveland, Gold Eagle's Engine Answerman, and Gold Eagle's Tom
Bingham discuss how ethanol blended fuels affect a small engine.
Difficulties discussed are phase separation, corrosion and fuel breaking
down to gum & varnish. To help prevent these problems, Gold Eagle developed
STA-BIL Ethanol Treatment which contains a water remover, corrosion
inhibitor, fuel stabilizer and a synthetic cleaner.
How to install an E85 conversion kit
We show how easy it is to install an E85 ethanol FlexFuel conversion kit in
to a vehicle. Ryan and Thomas aged 13 and 9 demonstrate how easy it is
converting to E85 and how easy installation is. This converter kit is a
Full Flex Gold and will allow the car to run on E85, Gas, or any mixture of
the two. We install a Full Flex Gold which is the only EPA compiant kit
available. Brought to you by http://www.change2E85.com. The #1 source for
