  3. If you missed the announcement, RFA has partnered with Hauk Designs to build a custom off-road vehicle that will feature E85. The build will feature a 2018 Wrangler JL and expectations are more than 1,000 horsepower. You can learn more in our press release (link below), and follow the action via mini-episodes on RFA's Facebook (link below). Once the 14-weeks social media campaign is over, the content will be bundled and expanded, then featured on Amazon Prime on the show, Hauk Machines. RFA Press Release: https://ethanolrfa.org/2019/07/rfa-hauk-designs-to-showcase-ethanol-benefits-with-e85-flex-fuel-off-road-project/ Follow the action here: https://www.facebook.com/EthanolRFA/

  9. Aw, shucky ducky! This UNL88 stuff might be going mainstream! I opened up the GasBuddy app today, and today I noticed there was a place to put in a UNL88/E15 price at for my local Family Express. You can even search by UNL88 stations, though there are not many at all listed and I had to go and add a fuel for a couple of stations around here that do indeed carry E15. Exciting times!

  15. I posted in a separate thread. It is possible to retrofit a snowmobile to run E85, however there are steps that have to be taken to insure cold start in extremely cold temperatures. Previous sleds have been fitted with a pre-warmer for first start in the morning or have run lower concentrations of ethanol for the same purpose.
  16. I rode an Alpina years ago in Old Forge, NY. Great machines. We have worked with a few snowmobiles and the results were very positive, however being a cold fuel the owners had to fit a pre-warmer for the first start in the morning. After there is heat in the engine start-up is good for the rest of the day unless the temps are ferociously cold, however you can run a blend below 50% ethanol to ease starting in cold weather. Gains to HP and torque are around 8% to the ground.

  18. I'm just going to put all the GPS coordinates and deletion requests in this thread here. #1 Deletion: Wilco Address: 2080 E Commercial Ave, Lowell, Indiana I don't think this station is around anymore, it's probably been about 9 years since the Wilco grocery store was bought out by Strack and Van Til's, and it looks like it was somewhere near that time that the fuel pumps were removed, at least according to aerial images in Google Earth's Historical Imagery. Looks like the station was only around for 3 years. It's a parking lot now.
  19. Thank you, Rack. I will update the station on E85prices.com
  20. It doesn't seem to have a latitude and longitude assigned to it in the database, as the pin for the station is on the Equator and Prime Meridian on the map. Here's a link to a map and approximate coordinates: https://www.google.com/maps/place/403+E+8th+St,+Overbrook,+KS+66524/@38.7819882,-95.5524486,410m/data=!3m1!1e3!4m5!3m4!1s0x87bf3caf8a4a1c21:0x51d2213a0aa495d5!8m2!3d38.7820405!4d-95.5513386 38.781936, -95.551367

  22. Casey's in Crown Point changed their E10 - E15 spread now that regular is up at $3.149. Now it's down to 4 cents from 5 cents. Maybe one day I can buy E15 and get more miles for fewer dollars. I think 5 cents is about the biggest spread I've seen around here, and that isn't worth buying if E10 is more than $2.849 or so. I guess I'll have to wait for the fall when prices go down again.
  23. Prices starting to rise in the Calumet Region, Family Express pushing $3.199 per gallon of E10. That means E15 with a 2 cent discount still isn't worth buying. E15 with even an 5 cent discount isn't worth buying, we're into 5.5 cent discount range (which I doubt I will see, all prices end in 9. I saw 70% E85 at 1.840 once, probably a typo). I guess I could bust out my formula, and get the exact break-even discount, but is there a quick estimate I could use instead? I think I've thought of one. As a bonus, you can use it for my favorite miles per dollar challenge, the IBEC ethanol pump: http://www.ibecethanol.com/ Ethanol/E100 has about 2/3 of the energy of pure gasoline/E0. This is the same as 40/60 (just multiply by 1 or 20/20). Put it another way, your gallon of pure gasoline has 60 units of energy. Pure ethanol, 40 units. So 5% or 1/20 of a gallon of E0 has 3 units, and 5% or 1/20 of a gallon of E100 has 2 units. What about E10? 2 of those 20 3 unit E0 sections are now 2 unit E100 sections, one less unit of energy per ethanol unit. 60 - 2 is 58. E15 would have 3 units swapped from gas to ethanol, so 3 fewer units, 57. So you'd want your E15 to cost 57/58 the price of E10. $3.199 *(57/58) is $3.144, or 5.5 cents less than the E10 price, fairly close, I think! And the IBEC challenge? The goal is the minimize dollars spent per unit of fuel energy. E15 has 57 units, E30 has 54 units, E50 has 50 units (halfway between 40 and 60, seems right!) and E85 would have a mere 43 units. Now it's just division. 2.699/57 is 4.74 cents per unit, 2.499/54 is 4.63 cents per unit, 2.299/50 is 4.60 cents per unit and 1.849/43 is 4.30 cents per unit. E85 wins!
