How does it compare in price to gas? Does it give the same mileage?

OK....One last time I hope for all the folks concerned about using our good edible corn to make fuel. We will all starve and the price of corn will sky rocket!!! Just calm down......The corn used for making E-85 is not the kind of corn you would eat unless you are a cow or a pig. They use field corn to make it, NOT SWEET CORN!! People cant eat the corn they use! Field corn can be grown nearly anywhere and is in plentiful stock. We waste nearly the amount they use to make E-85. So just relax, take a deep breath, no one is going to go hungry and the farmers will finally get some much needed help.

one other way to get us out of older cars, eh, force or encourage us to use that fuel to lessen our gas mileage and ruin our older cars that we've already paid for. Anything to get the auto market back on their feet. What a deal!

Your MPG will drop by (an average) of about 27% when you use E85 instead of E10 (gas)....Good Luck with E85

Just what I've been looking for. This was the same topic yesterday and I haven't changed my mind. Ethanol is no good. Keep the ingredient for the cows.

That's nice for Wisconsin but that doesn't do you any good if you're in Ohio or Pennsylvania, somehow it doesn't seem very fuel efficient to drive to Wisconsin to save $.50/ gallon on E85.......maybe some other states may see fit to follow the lead and publish their own lists????

I'll bet that even if you can't use E-85, you can use the free map of Wisconsin.

E85 is cheaper, but it has less energy. Fuel mileage drops 15% or so. So, to make it cost effective to use, the price of E85 has to be 15% less than regular gas.
Most places, regular gas already has 10% ethanol (E10).

Only place where E85 is a decent price is Council Bluffs Iowa where it was $1.95 a gallon, 60 cents cheaper than regular unleaded. Going to try some at the end of the month.

I think 15 percent is getting too thin a mix for good power up the grade with AC on.

I've seen it 30 cents a gallon cheaper; but not sure if its worth the loss in fuel mileage.

Doesn't alcohol based fuel damage the rubber parts? This mixture is probably more harmful. But it will entice you to keep buying new to get the best/newest rummer products that might keep your car running.

Corn is kind of expensive and in short supply this year. Probably went into our fuel tanks instead of our stomachs.

Free maps are a good thing. If you can not find a station, you can not buy fuel.

Now we are talking... Most people do NOT have a flex fuel car, but for those of us who do, this is helpful (when on a road trip, I know where the local stations are located!)...... Too bad E85 KILLS small engines like motorcycles, lawn mowers, etc.... otherwise I would be tempted to use it when gas prices are $3 a gallon and E85 is $2 a gallon!!!!

There are better, more efficient and cheaper methods to produce ethanol without using food substances. Sadly, the politics behind using corn, and those who profit from the government subsidies, will be the hurdle to cross.
