BMW Z4 E85 E86 E85 fuel in f-150 engines

Has anyone ever ran E85 fuel in their f-150 I have a 99 4.2L and Im starting to get tired of paying high prices for petroleum. I know you can get a permit from the government to build a moonshine still as long as you are using it to create E85 fuel and I was somewhat thinking about doing it. But there is no point in wasting the money if I cant run it in my truck. Please let me know what yall think.

BMW Z3 E36 Buying a Z4 2008 need some clarification

First of all am new to the forum so hi guys Am soon about to buy a 2008 Z4 3.0si and i have some basic questions to ask a little background of me am 20 year old i drive a 2003 Mercedes e240 which am going to sell it off soon to get the Z4 ( my first bmw ) 1) this my first time buying a convertible car i have heard soft top dont last long is it the same for bmw 2)is z4 a good car for a everyday

Make sure you get some good soft top cleaners and protentants. 2. Before my M Coupe I had a Z4 Roadster for 4 years (03 to 07) and used it as a daily commuter. The ride will be harsher than your current MB but if you enjoy spirited driving you will have no regrets. 3. Not true. After 4 years of ownership my soft top looked as good as when it was new. 4. I dont mean to bash MB but at least for me bmws

BMW Z3 E36 2004 Z4 Newbie Brag

I did it I did it I did it I changed my own oil I used this guide . Two newbie gotchas 1. Whats that little copper looking washer for that comes with the filter and O-ring Found out it goes on the drain plug after finding the old one in the old oil. 2. When the oil plug finally lets loose it REALLY lets loose. I made a bit of a mess but Ill know better next time where to put the oil bucket thing. Good

not miles or computer. I think the computer waits way too long and Ill tell you why. To me being an engineer the guild lines are based on pure milestime algorithm not stop-and-go not severe weather not driving habits. If everything is perfect then you can get 12K miles or whatever the computer says between changes. But things are not perfect. Cold start-ups stomping on the gas (I do not baby my Z4)

BMW Z4 E85 E86 E85 Ethanol in a Punto

I have a 2000 Mk 2 8v 1.2 Punto Active and Ive been using varying amounts of E85 fuel (Ethanol) with over the past few months. I havent made an engine modifications. I started with 5 litres of E85 and filling the rest of the tank with ordinary petrol. Im now up to a 50-50 mix of E85 and petrol. I havent noticed any ill effects apart from a bit of rough running after a few weeks which I put down to

E 85 is 85% petrol so the economy should not suffer that much. Its also higher octane so engines with a knock sensor can optimise the ignition point and do even better. To check if it really is the E85 try a tank of 100% petrol to see if the fuel economy improves. I suspect it wont and theres a servicing issue. It might be more searching than plain petrol so it might shift old gunk from the petrol

(Although Im no scientist) Like biodiesel ethanol dislodges the residue left over from the hydrocarbons like petrol. Not a big issue with the MK 2 Punto with its fuel filter for life

anyone use it yet and whats the formula to make it work or do you have to do some conversion to make it work

From the most recent Consumer Reports But after putting a 2007 Chevrolet Tahoe FFV through an array of fuel economy acceleration and emissions tests and interviewing more than 50 experts on ethanol fuel CR determined that E85 will cost consumers more money than gasoline and that there are concerns about whether the government&8217s support of FFVs is really helping the U.S. achieve energy independence.

BMW Z4 E85 E86 2004 F-150 E85 (Ethonol)

GM has been on a big advertising kick the past few days on how their vehicles (mainly trucks) are E85 ready. Other than where the name is derived (85% ethyl alcohol and 15% petrol) I dont know a whole lot about E85. The GM commercials claim that E58 is cheaper emits fewer pollutants into the atmosphere and produces more power. Are the statements from GM true If so what does it take to make our trucks

Alcohols are a partial oxidation product of petroleum and are not found to any extent in the crude oil.

has anyone ever ran e85 in their tj

Extra corrosive.. bah.. I did it a couple weeks ago.. Jeep ran like a top.. and no Check engine light.. although it smelled like kettle corn out of my exhaust.. E85 is called that because 85% of it is made with the obvious.. corn.. and made into Alcohol. 15% of that is petroleum based so to prevent damage to the fuel system. For that matter Gasoline is just as corrosive if you want to go down that

Can we ( I ) convert or use E85 with a 2000 V6 Thanks for any help.

Im really surprised at how many people here seem to really dislike ethanol. I wish I had purchased a truck that was rated for E85 because I would be using it now if I could. I know Id get less MPG and I would guess that the lower price of E85 would not make up the difference in lowered MPG BUT I WOULD BE PROVIDING REVENUE TO A COMPETITOR TO THE OIL COMPANIES. That alone makes ethanol worthwhile to

BMW Z4 E85 E86 2011 ecoboost and e85

prior to buying my truck i had read somewhere that these engines were e85 compliant. never gave it a thought while buying the truck but today i opened the filler door while cleaning the truck and there was a big e85 logo with a circle and slash in red. i would guess that means no e85 for this truck. no stations around here sell it but thats not to say in the future it will not be. i sure hope they dont put it for sale this e90 or 10% corn is bad enough.

BMW Z4 E85 E86 E85 Conversion

Well i am looking at doing a conversion to run E85 Fuel in my rally car There are several reasons behind doing this but the main one is bulk hp and torque at a moderate level of boost E85 is a blend of 85% ethanol and 15% 98 ron fuel and has an octane rating of 109 this allows you to put in large amounts of timing to achieve more power but also because the fuel is alcohol based and the amount you need

Hello all I have been watching this forum for a while now and yesterday I finally decided to bite the bullet and order my dreamcar I have been looking for some months now to what to get and I have always wanted to buy a 6 but the price scared me away from it but you only live once so I decided to go for it.

Hello Gran Turismo First of all thanks for your input. And in regards to your responses... 1.

BMW SERIES 5 E60 E61 why doesnt m3 follow suit or 550 for that matter

I am curious as to why bmw spends soo much R and D on new engines. For example this new m3 that is coming out-all this workd to build a unique brand new engine that makes 405hp-why not throw the current m5m6 engine in and save all that dough in r and d plus give people more power. It will never hurt m5m6 sales since I believe people who can afford the cars at that point like more than just the power-they

You have to realize that they are constantly phasing engines in and out of production. Its hard to replace them across the entire product line instantly.

Heard some news from my dealer yesterday about the abarth release. i dont know if any of it is true so dont quote me on it they said it is very unlikely to be released this year due to the release of the bravo. apparently all the t-jet 150 engines are being used for the bravo and due to popular demand of the t-jet 150 bravo it takes priority over the GP Abarth. As said dont quote me on it.

Does anyoe know where I can find specs for the 1.9 sporting I have been looking everywhere but cant seem to find any apart from the usual on parkers. Anyone know the 0-100 and something like 60-100 times As these are much more useful than 0-60 times personally to me. Thanks.

100mph and thats why theres now figures... The Old Diesel makes 124mph standard & whilst the 0-60 time doesnt seem to be a ball of fire Im afraid that the real life driving experience belies belief.
