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.

0-60 MPH in 3 Seconds, running E85 Flex Fuel
A turbocharged 2006 Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution, converted to flex-fuel, doing 0-60 MPH in three seconds.
This is my brother-in-law in the video, and it's his car. I can't answer any questions about the video, and I know nothing about vehicle performance. But I found the idea of ethanol as a high performance fuel very interesting.
Some people have asked about why it's sputtering. It was poorly tuned at the moment.
Thanks for all the comments and the views. I really didn't expect this to get 15,000 views.
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.

E85 Fuel in my 2005 Honda Civic
I am an ethanol enthusiast and biofuels blogger. I fill up my 2005 Honda Civic with half of E85 fuel and half gasoline, at Propel Fuels, in California.
Most gasoline engine vehicles are designed to run on a 50/50 mixture of E85 and gasoline. However, if you are new to E85 fuel, you can start by filling up your engine with just one gallon of E85 and the rest with gasoline to see how your car responds. When it is time to fill up again, use two gallons of E85 and the rest gasoline. If this works out just fine,as it should, then work your way up to filling up your tank half way with E85 fuel and gasoline.
Once I get my flex fuel engine converter installed, I will solely use E85. It is important to note that E85 is highly oxygenated and gives you more horse power than gasoline. In addition, E85 burns cleaner in your engine and substantially reduces green house gas emissions and pollutants, such as carbon monoxides, hydrocarbons, and nitrogen oxides.
