How Much Ethanol / E85 is in your car's gas tank? This gauge can tell you
I filled up on 12.4 gallons of E85 in my 14 gallon tank. I previously had 1.6 gallons of 91 octane in the tank. The Zeitronix ECA shows how much ethanol is now in my tank.
The Zeitronix Ethanol Content Analyzer display provides real time readouts of fuel ethanol content and fuel temperature. Two analog outputs, ethanol percentage and fuel temperature, are provided for datalogging and engine management system use. The ethanol content of E85 fuel can vary from 60% to 92% ethanol. A fill up with E85 can drastically change the mix of fuel in your vehicle. For performance drivers determining actual ethanol content of E85 is essential to maximizing an engine tune and horsepower.
**Note, my camera makes the gauge's lights flicker. In person the lights on the gauge do not flicker.

E85 Ethanol Does not harm Non-FlexFueled Engines
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. If you would like to learn more about an E85 converter kit for your
vehicle, please visit http://www.change2e85.com.
