    I have a Roush Blower on my 18. What does it take to run Flex Fuel?

    Return style fuel system, likely more injector unless you already upgraded from the stock kit, custom tune for e54. The problem is NA you can run a flex tune to account for the variation in e content. With FI most won't do that so they'll have to dial in an e54 specific tune. Lund will do it. Black Market Racing locally here in Phoenix will also do it.

    If your out west Chevron at 91st and olive is a good spot for flex fuel. Tested 56% this week. Highest test results I've seen so far. If I'm out east I use 48th and Broadway too. Or shell on scottsdale road if I'm north east. All three of those test consistently good. I've had low results at a few other gas stations I've tried.

    If I'm not mistaken I believe he is referring to Scottsdale and Deer Valley.

    I don't think there is a Shell station around there. Shell location search doesn't return any.

    Damn. Was hoping for something closer to justify switching. It's an 8th of a tank and a chunk of time to get there and back anywhere else I ever am.

    Has anybody had the chance to check out the Flex Fuel at the Valero on Scottsdale and Mckellips? That's close to me and wouldn't cost me 2 gallons just to drive to.

    Yes I was referring to the one at happy valley but it looks like you guys already figured that out!

    You can make a cheap and easy tester with a Gatorade bottle to try their flex fuel out. I used one before buying a good tester and as long as you measure and mark the bottle carefully, it's very accurate. The only valero I tested was out west last year. It only tested at 40% ethanol so I've never gone back.

    Anyone know any E85 stations near GCU in Phoenix. If you don't know where GCU is more towards the west side of Phoenix like near Alhambra and Glendale side

    Here's a start. Nothing really close but it would depend how much driving you do.

    Closest I know personally would be Texaco 7th st and Indian School but have seen some lower quality there in the past so wouldn't recommend.
