  1. Never mind Dan, I just had it messed up in my favorites, you already have that station. ;D
  2. Dan, E85 Station for Lincoln, Nebraska: Shell (Roc's Stop & Shop) 5757 S 85th St Lincoln, NE 68526 (Across from Lincoln Christian School) E85 $2.29 E0 $2.79 PS I messed up on 7/23/10 and reported E0 as $2.00 when it should of been $2.72 @ U- Stop selling E85 (110 West O Street, Lincoln, Nebraska) Please fix it if you can. THANKS
  3. I have no issues, I've been using E85 in a 1999 Ford ZX2 for over 5 Years with a Flextek converter I bought from Brazil. My point is that if it is made to handle today's gasoline (High aromatic), it will handle straight E85. Gasoline (High aromatic) has a "D" rating with aluminum Denatured Alcohol has a "B" rating
  4. Does anyone here have a Non-FFV Chevy Tahoe, Silverado, or Suburban from the years 2000 - 2007 with a 5.3L engine? I would like to know what the fuel rail is made out of. Is it stainless, aluminum, or steal? THANKS
  5. Alcohol: Attacks aluminum (So does high aromatic gasoline, even worse) That's why todays vehicles have to use aluminum that has a protective coating. http://www.coleparmer.com/techinfo/ChemComp.asp Copper has an "A" rating with ethanol. Copper only has a "B" rating with gasoline. (High aromatic would be worse yet)
  6. Hey hows everyone doing lately. I haven't been able to drop in here as much as I would like to anymore. I'm Doing good, My car is still liken the E85 I've been buying E85 for $1.97 lately W/ a U-Stop loyalty Card (-2ยข/Gal). 25% difference in price compared to reg. I loose about 11% MPG on E85. Can't complain here. I still haven't made a fuel ethanol still, E85 prices here have been pretty good. Maybe some day I will. ;D
  7. This is a new pump within the last month
  8. They are keeping their E85 down below $1.99 so far, forced the other stations in town to go down also. ;D The other stations in town were at $2.09 now they all are @ $1.99
  9. New E85 pump installed a while back @: Sinclair / Sapp Bros Truck Stop 6001 Cornhusker Hwy Lincoln, NE
  10. From what I understand the company that is I think is looking at buying them out is interested in the E85 distribution end of things. Just a rumor though.
  11. THANKS, I came across that link shortly after I posted the question while looking at something else.
  12. 1outlaw, Do you have a link(s) for blender pump installations? I have been trying to incurage a few station in Lincoln NE to install blender pumps. I think it would do well here. There are a lot of people already blending the hard way from pump to pump. Any info would be appreciated. THANKS
  13. We could use more wind tubines...... Opps too many electric vehicles
  14. This thing reminds me of the ethanol Reverse Osmosis scam a while back. These RO system was suppose to have special ethanol RO filters that could separate the ethanol water out of the ethanol. Turned out all they were was a plain old water RO system nothing more. $10,000 man somebody is gonna get screwed! :
  15. Bird, http://www.fueleconomy.gov/ uses a standard fuel to run all test. They then Calculate all fuels using the energy content difference from that standard fuel. Gasoline MPG and E85 MPG are both Calculated mileage and Not a Lab test using that fuel. They do not account for added fuel efficiencies of a different fuel. That's why you see the MPG of a FFV is reported by drivers to be 15-20% rather than the EPA milage difference of 33%. If you had a FFV that got 33% less MPG, you would need to contact the dealer. We have had some on this sight even that have had to go back to the dealer to have the vehicle's computer program re-flashed. A few FFV have a service bulletin from the dealer about problems with improper vehicle tune for E85.
  16. Their forum has change and split off several times. I used to regularly check post on a few of them but not lately. Not sure they are all still around. I will have to check. http://lists.topica.com/lists/robertwarren/read/message.html?mid=813101109&sort=d&start=4021 I found the latest post: The official forum: http://groups.google.com/group/robertwarren I think the first break off forum: http://tech.groups.yahoo.com/group/alcoholfuel/ Another of the break off forums: http://desorgilles.tripod.com/ Some of the guys don't get along as good as our sight does. Even so you see many of them on all the sights listed. They get some pretty good arguments sometime but end up apologizing and somewhat making up. A dysfunctional family you could say.
  17. Neb. is a Public Power State. We have some of the cheapest electrical rates in the Nation. NPPD is a major reason Neb. is the 2nd largest ethanol producing state. They did a lot of the leg work to pick out good spots to build ethanol plants on. http://www.ethanolsites.com/ Look down at the bottom. Here's another sight: http://sites.nppd.com/default.aspx (Now where's that Bag of cement mix?...) Where did you say you live Cessna? ;D
  18. The only thing I could find is the cold start procedure on the Brazil sight: http://www.flextek.com.br/?lang=eng&act=9
  19. The ECU does all the fine tuning and also tries to advance the timing until it gets a signal from the knock sensor. So pretty much as far as the ECU will let it. These converters just get the air/fuel mix up to the level the ECU can handle.
  20. Just found a small problem with the Calc. I put $2.59 in for E85, $3.14 in for gasoline 27 MPG for E85, 31 MPG for gasoline Cost per mile on both = $0.10 Maybe it would be better to add one more decimal place to it? Looks like it rounded one up and the other one down making them the same.
  21. Thumbs UP, Great Idea ;D This will help some of the clueless come around.
  22. There was a company a while back that had something similar to this. It was a reverse osmosis system to separate alcohol from water. It turned out to be a scam. All it is was a normal water RO filter they tried to pass off as some special new technology.
  23. I came across this a while back. Can't remember if I posted it already. http://www.tectane.com/intro.html Watch the Tectane Documentary. It has to do with water injection and it's history.
  24. Preheating a battery by giving it giving it a small load (normally headlights for 20 seconds) before starting on an extremely cold day does work and is good for the battery. I learned that trick while I was going through college for my electrical degree. I have tried it on extrem cold mornings where the engine would have turned over slow because of the thick cold oil. I had it work when I couldn't even get it to turn over once. I figured I was already stranded with a dead battery, what did I have to loose. Might as well give it a try, it worked. Turned on the head light 20 second, turned them off, turned the key and it started. The electrical current heats the battery acid just enough to get the chemical reactions going in the battery. Batteries won't work well or take much of a charge when cold. So it not only helps the battery put out its full cranking amps, it also let's the battery charge back up sooner when driving. So loading up the battery a little with a heater just before starting will actually be good on your battery.
