Gas Station Name
Location
% reading
Method of reading (accessport, test tube, gauge, etc)
Season (I'll obviously know this based on when you're posting, but share it anyway).

Score one for the excuse to bang the flex sensor in. With a plant 15 minutes in any direction I'm stoked to see how stuff stacks up GTPpower GTPpower where u at

Oh man I forgot about this. 74.9% kearney,ne verified off flex sensor in an 18 5.3 burb yesterday.

Said he'd ran 3 tanks through it to clean it out before he brought it down for tires and a lil spice.

Almost kinda pissed how well gm did e85 tuning there wasn't much of anything left to be had in it without opening somethin up somewhere

My shits strong my gauge maxes out at 78% for some reason, but this last batch smells real strong it’s gotta be mid to upper 80’s I’ll pull a sample next time, it’s off Lorenzo road on rt55

Y'all actually measure the %?

Is that something I should be doing? I didn't last season

I just run it on the tube at the beginning of the season or at a new gas station to make sure it is over 70% at an absolute minimum. Once I have a good spot testing I really don’t check any further, maybe an occasional spot check.

Mind you I do not have a flex fuel sensor, but I've been told from numerous sources that it really doesn't matter as long as the alcohol content is over 50%.... Truth?

My tuner said as long as we are above 70% we are good, not sure if there is a fudge factor in there or not.

I think we tuned my Evo on 70%+. And I was running 40psi and above. No issues.

I wont fuck with anything under 70 tho, unless I'm on a flex fuel setup.
