Is anybody in here running power tour and running E85 full time?

I have a ticket for the Indy check point, and plan to cruise from Austin, IN to the race track. The only trouble is that I cannot seem to find any E85 stations until just before the raceway. It's not a huge deal because I have a V6 and I'll just fill a couple cans, but I was wondering if anybody else has scoped these stations out. If so, how? I haven't been running E85 long so actually planning a trip around it is not something I'm used to.

Bring lots of fuel with you. Really the only way.

That was kind of my thought. I'm thinking about buying a roof rack just to hold my cans. lol

i did Power Tour with the Supra but it had flex fuel which helped....but it definitely got sketchy a few times looking for corn...almost ran out of gas in the middle of nowhere looking for the corn pump, [MENTION=102]DanJoy[/MENTION] remembers :rofl:

If you can find pumps along the route and have folks test for you (I did that the first year of NoFlyZone in Rantoul)....that helps too...otherwise, I would just buy some Ignite e85 or something like that to bring with you.

Download the gas buddy app and you can set a filter to show only e85 stations on the map.

Middle of nowhere, miles from the next gas station. Only place that had E85 was some gas pump in the middle of a concrete slab by itself off a back road. I believe it tested pretty high too :rofl:

It was straight e85, which was amazing b/c it was literally, as you said, sitting off a side road with nothing around it :rofl:

Gas buddy is pretty good. I have it, but I've also noticed that it's missing a lot of stations near me. There's a website with a list of every E85 station in Indiana, but it doesn't appear to have been updated this decade. lol

I'll just be sure to fill my tank and a couple big cans before I leave the last known station. That should honestly last me the entire day anyway. I'm pretty good about keeping my foot out of it.

I drive all over the place on e85 I just bring cans with me, it’s easier than worrying about what the stations will test
