My supercharger is really enjoying the cooler weather. Keeping an eye on the E85 ethanol content. When they drop the ethanol ratio will switch back 93 octane. I will miss the easy 30 hp that I gain with E85. What a kick in the nuts. Oh well it’s better to store the RSX over winter with 93 in the tank – less issues overall

How long can e85 sit in the car for without causing trouble? I hear it can clog up the injectors but would like a timeline on how long the car can sit for. I've been told a week is ok, but seen a video of a guy starting up his rsx on e85 for the first time in 6 months. Took a couple of cranks but eventually started right up.

My car sat for 6 weeks this summer without starting. I'm on e85 and 2000cc injectors. It started right up. :dontknow:

I have a brand new Skunk Megapower RR sitting in my basement. I haven't thrown it on yet, as I'm having too much fun running an open down pipe. :vtec:

The neighbors seem to tolerate it for now. :coffee:

I might be overreacting, but as a precaution I'm switching my car back to pump gas while it’s in storage this winter. Ethanol is hygroscopic and absorbs water to the point that it will pull it out of the air. With the fuel tank cap on tight and a little positive pressure due to ethanol vapor, there may be little to none of chances of moisture getting in the tank or the rest of the fuel system. I just want to reduce the risk of oxidation, corrosion, or jelling that may be caused from moisture or a chemical reaction.

I’m running with 1000 cc injectors, both fuel lines sized -6AN, DW300 (340 L/H) fuel pump, with the base fuel pressure set at 50 psi and have no issues of starvation.

No, -8 feed, -6 return.

Maybe they're talking about on stock lines.
