How much HP does switching to E85 add?

The benefits of E85 really come from the higher octane (up to 110, depending on ethanol content and quality). This allows some of the same benefits you see when using methanol injection, meaning you can run more spark (if needed) or boost. This normally translates to 25-50 or more horsepower on a forced-induction car.

Can you convert any car to E85?

If your vehicle is fuel injected, and is 1995 or newer, you will only need two things in order to convert your engine to flex fuel. You will need an electronic control module that plugs in between the fuel injectors and the factory fuel injector electrical connectors.

You don’t have to drain it, Ford just recommends waiting until you need more fuel if you plan to change from 87 to E85 or E85 to 87. We do not recommend repeatedly alternating between E85 and gasoline. If you switch from using E85 to gasoline, or from gasoline to E85, add as much fuel as possible, at least half a tank.

How much HP does E85 Add to SS?

With FlexLink you can run E85 in your Camaro and switch from gas to ethanol anytime. Running E85 will give you more power, cheaper fuel at the pump, lower cylinder, oil and coolant temps and cleaner emissions and zero knock. Naturally aspirated cars will see a 7-8% wheel HP boost.

Why does E85 give you more HP?

The E85 boosts the engine’s horsepower because of two factors: its amazing octane rating and cooling capacity. The octane rating indicates a fuel’s power to withstand denotation or knock. You cannot get too much boost with normal pump fuels because of denotation; hence the low octane ratings.

Is it worth switching to E85?

Commonly, it is 25% to 35% less expensive than other high-octane fuels. You’ll see big savings on fuel. E85 can lower your vehicle’s MPG by up to 25%, but many vehicles only lose 15% to 20% in fuel mileage. Even if you see a 25% drop in your vehicle’s mileage, you’ll still save money anyway.
