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 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.
