  • E85 ?

    I am thinking these days of looking for different alternative's to fuel. Are thier any technologies to switch over to E85 fuel which would mean to convert my 1950 Flat head 6 and my 289 stude motor to use E85. What is involved in converting?

    This has been covered of late. Go to the search function and enter E-85 and you will find a couple of threads on the subject.On the technical forum.

      Demon Carburetors has brought out a carb made for E85. Unfortunately, the fuel bowls are set up like a Holley (Fore & Aft).

          I just want to grow hemp which gets 4X the energy of corn ethanol but we cant. Maybe one day we could change the laws and have a bit more freedom.
