    Default E85 filling stations

    I found this to be odd: Texas has the largest number of cars that can run on E85 and Florida is second largest yet there are VERY FEW E85 filling stations here in Florida. The closest one to me is over fifty miles away.

    You will make power with CV-1 heads if you stop thinking of them as a 'Pontiac' head and think of them as a head on a Pontiac block

    Since Thornton's filling stations have sprung up I have one about four miles from my house. Here is their site to see if there are any near you.

    Yep, if you live in an area that has plenty of E-85, then it's a cheap way to run a high comp engine. There are lots of guys running it now on both street and strip. It not only has more octane, but makes the engine run cooler too. My engine guy ran a 4.50 stroker in a modified dirt car, on E-85. It made over 750hp on the dyno, and ran super cool all the time.

    You can Google up tons of info nowadays on what is required to run it, as well as lots of choices in E-85 carbs. You can buy one outright, send in your gas carb and have it fixed, or buy a kit to do it yourself.
