E85 vs Gasoline Comparison Test

The best comparison of retail products is E10 gasoline to E85 As of Oct 2016 the current spread per gallon of gas equivalent energy (GGE) is 29 cents ($2 22/GGE for E10 and $2 51/GGE for E85 You can go look up historical prices as far back as 2000 Already up to 10% ethanol is being added to gasoline at many locations across Canada This amount of ethanol can be used in regular gasoline powered fuel injected vehicles without any changes required The next step is to make E85 available If you have an E85 Flex-Fuel vehicle you can run regular gasoline in it and switch to E85 at any time

Test fuel for ethanol to protect engines from contaminated

Fuel-Testers-Portable Alcohol Fuel Test Kits and E10 Tips: Check gas for ethanol and water to protect motors - Boat auto airplane lawn storage tanks and all gas-powered engines from E10 gasoline-caused damage and performance problems Quik Check Solution instantly reveals ethanol and/or water in fuel Confirm pure-gas at pumps labeled ethanol-free

6-8-2005Both gasoline and E85 will give best thermal effeciency at about 15% rich of stoich so the equivalent of 12 78:1 on gasoline would be about 8 5:1 on E85 but E85 will continue to give better torque numbers up to about +40% rich of stoich or 7:1 mixtures so on a utec you would want to richen up your WOT high load cells and add a tweak of timing to get the most out of E85 from what I've read

12/8/2007I couldn't find the RON and MON rating of e85 but fyi 87 Octane gasoline MON 82 RON 92 So both the MON and the RON of the E100 would be reduced with the 15% mixture of 87 octane It would have a significantly lower MON rating than VP 110 but a higher RON MON is a better test of a fuel's tendency to pre ignite than RON

Now that you have determined your base injector size you will need to determine the difference in size to run E85 Fuel The way to do this is to do some simple math You are going to use the multiplying factor of 1 47 to get your size The 1 47 number represents the difference between the stoiciometric fuel ratio of gasoline and E85 Gasoline is 14 7 and E85 is 10 0

Hydrous ethanol vs gasoline

The model was validated by experimental data for engine burn rates fuel consumption exhaust temperature and exhaust emissions of E22 (78% gasoline + 22% ethanol) and E85 (15% gasoline + 85% ethanol) fuels The authors found that the use of E85 increases engine thermal efficiency and BMEP in comparison to E22

It is difficult for one to measure octane rating in E85 directly This is because ethanol starts to vaporize at around 172 degrees F compared to gasoline which begins to boil at between 100 and 430 degrees F The Motor Octane Number designed to test gas requires that the air/fuel mixture be at 300 degrees F as it passes through an intake

The Tier 2 Gasoline Sulfur program finalized in 2000 reduced the sulfur content of gasoline by up to 90 percent enabling the use of new emission control technologies in cars and trucks that reduce harmful air pollution The Tier 2 program marked the first time EPA treated vehicles and fuels as a system The program grew out of a Clean Air Act requirement that EPA consider the need

(b) This is basically a No-Load test and this number should NEVER be used to determine which fuel to use in your race engine Specific Gravity (SG): Density of the fuel (a) This is the weight of fuel compared to water water being at 1 00 If race fuel is 750 (specific gravity) it would weigh the weight of water

Silicon-based antifoam agents can be used in ethanol plants which then pass silicon on to the finished ethanol-fuel blend This test method can be used to determine if gasoline gasoline-ethanol blends and ethanol-fuel blends meet specifications with respect to silicon content of the fuel and for resolution of customer problems

Ethanol use in vehicle fuel is increasing worldwide but the potential cancer risk and ozone-related health consequences of a large-scale conversion from gasoline to ethanol have not been examined Here a nested global-through-urban air pollution/weather forecast model is combined with high-resolution future emission inventories population data and health effects data to examine the effect

Gasoline vs E85 Comparison There are many differences between E85 and gasoline Here you will find the biggest things to consider before making your choice My personal recommendation is to choose gasoline due to the more expensive repair costs when using E85 in many cars This includes failed fuel injectors fuel pumps etc Decreased mileage

The quantities needed are different: more E85 is needed than gasoline typically 20- to 35-percent more E85 is the designation for an ethanol-blended fuel where ethanol makes up 85-percent of the content and gasoline 15-percent E85 has a few issues you need to take into account before using it

Is Ethanol Cheaper Than Gasoline?

A 49 cent-per-gallon discount to gasoline provides E85 **E85 MPG/BTU adjusted $3 756 $3 900 $4 042 $3 385 $4 455 Yes superficially it looks like fuel with higher ethanol blends (e g E85 which is 85 percent ethanol and 15 percent gasoline and can only be used in flex fuel vehicles) are currently "cheaper than gas "

Supported fuels include pure ethanol E85 and other blends of ethanol and gasoline This kit can be installed in 10-15 minutes by a professional auto mechanic or a handy car enthusiast No specialized adjustment is required Compatibility Fits in ANY electronic monopoint or multipoint port fuel injection system Works with any signal type: -12V or +12V Compatible with variable displacement

21 01 2010Like it or not E85 is designed to be a gas dilution fuel diluting gas with alcohol to reduce emmissions It requires more fuel for the same power As for the actual octane rating not the concentration/volume formula but in actual real world octane R+M/2 test (mechanical testing) E85 has a real octane rating between 94 and 96 octane All

Apr 05 2016A 25% E85 and 75% regular mix logically should not experience a consumption hit as severe as a pure E85 vs regular gas comparison Of course busting my engine would not save me a dime! Hence my posing the questions above Ray :biggrin-new: Save Share Reply

We need to do better Call me crazy but I like to breath clean air and I like my engines to run good We need to mandate E-85 as an option for customers at every gas station in America (along side regular gasoline) and then Auto Manufacturers need to start selling engines that are BUILT for E85 (High Compression Direct Injection) along side their standard gasoline engines so that we can

The octane of E85 can be from 100 to 105 or so It is not a straight change with the addition of gasoline ( ethanol around 115/120 octane E85 is around 100/105 octane and it drops quickly after that) It is suggested that 100 octane be used for E85 in this calculator to give a more accurate octane rating when mixed (diluted) with gasoline

Various alcohols are used as fuel for internal combustion engines The first four aliphatic alcohols (methanol ethanol propanol and butanol) are of interest as fuels because they can be synthesized chemically or biologically and they have characteristics which allow them to be used in internal combustion engines The general chemical formula for alcohol fuel is C n H 2n+1 OH

With gas engines but especially with diesel engines regular oil changes are a must Diesel fuel is not as refined as gasoline and the oil will get dirtier than a gasoline engine Replace air and fuel filters once a year If you live in a cold climate you will need to switch to a winter blend fuel to prevent fuel gelling
