    Probably a tune also. I have seen people use it thinking they are saving money but it usually throws a lean code. Last one I saw was a 96 corsica, it ran pretty good and I bet his intake valves were cleaned but it threw a lean code right away.

    You need to replace all rubber parts in the fuel system with neoprene. The fuel pump and injectors will need changed too. Really the only advantage is the octane its like 110 race gas, so if you have a race tune and the fuel system mods its definitly worth considering.

    So,what about the fuel tanks in our cars? are they rubber or plastic lined? Why change the fuel pump?not big enough? or not compatible? Dont I only have to change out the O-rings in the injectors,and not the injectors themselves?

    The tank is fine. The pump and injectors are not big enough for e-85. It takes more e-85 than gas to make the same power.
