Are you Whipple or Procharger?. E85 definitely reduced how far you can travel between fill ups. Thanks
Paxton. I filled up today and did some driving, the dash indicates 14mpg, did a little spirited driving but not near as much as usual.

How do you like the Paxton?. Is their much difference between Paxton no and procharger? What made you go with Paxton. Do you like E85?

I really like the centrifugal. I wanted turbos, but this is my first FI car and wanted something easy. I like the street manners, drives stock if you keep it under about 3.5k. Works really well with the 10speed too. Once you are ready to go it goes. Either are good products. The Paxton was cheaper and will get me where I wanted; though I am already looking at a bigger blower (hopefully I stop and just enjoy the car). E85 is a little inconvenient, but this is not a daily. I do like the power it makes on it, and have yet to put gas back in it (and plan on never, unless I am stuck without e85). Another benefit is the lack of smell. I am running headers no cats, no one has complained about the smell.

E85 Edelbrock supercharged 2016, 10-11 mpg, 160 miles per tank. 100 miles before every fill up. 60/40 Highway/City. Worth it!

17 M6 with 3.31 rear end, Whipple, 91 oct. Best mpg is at 2k 75mph-ish: 25 mpg.
In town, approx 15 mpg. DTE with full tank: approx 200 miles.

That's all via the dashboard display.

Thank you for the info. Do you have any regrets switching to E85. E85 definitely runs cooler.

None what so ever. You can definitely notice the power difference switching to E85 over crappy 91 here in CA.

Hi. Do you perform any routine maintenance or checks for the E85 Use? When you store your car for the winter, or for long periods of time, do you purge the lines or leave the E85 in it?. Just wondering the extra work involved when using E85. Thank you for your help.

I run NA but have a built gen2 coyote with ported heads, cams, etc. I run E85 on road courses and routinely see 5.7mpg on said track days (and about 13mpg around town). I take 4 5gallon jugs of corn with me.
