BigGreen posted a topic in Converting to E85Was looking for yet another conversion kit and saw that they are selling the business: https://www.fuelflexinternational.com/for-sale/ 'After 12 years in business, Fuel Flex International, the Builder of the only American Made E85 Conversion system has decided to pass the baton to a new owner.' Luckily they have enough 'franchises' like change2e85.com and similar. Greetings!
My White Lightning E85 Conversion installed in July has gone haywire. Three weeks ago, I started receiving Lean Fuel warnings while operating in automatic mode. Not knowing whether the lean fuel condition occurred under startup or when warm, I ticked the cold startup enrichment from 10% to 20%. That just made for bad stumbling while warming so I returned it to 10%. That lead me to believe the AUTO mode wasn't calibrating correctly. Meanwhile. A smog test request came in the mail. Rather than battle the issue, I decided to return to normal E10 fuel, so I could pass the emissions testing then return to trouble-shooting later. Still in auto mode with a splash mix of ~E20, the car ran well for about 20 miles after the fillup, then suddenly the engine was misfiring at all throttle settings. I could barely keep the engine lit. The check engine light was winking. Finally, I pulled over and chose the manual Gasoline setting - no fuel enrichment. Everything ran smoothly thereafter and I arrived home without further incident. The next moring, with a cold start, the engine shuddered violently. I shut it down and confirmed it had neither initiated cold-start mode nor changed from Gasoline mode. No matter, when I started again, it was less violent so I decided to drive off in hopes it would smooth out. It got worse! I returned the four blocks I had driven and extracted the kit. I am ready to claim warranty replacement. Is there possibly something I missed? What are others experience with this product?
All: Thought some of you might be interested... I spoke with a sales rep at Serious HP this week in Houston, TX. They offer many services, but apparently do a lot of E85 conversions. Many of you likely saw the E85 Hellcat over the weekend on the internet, they did that conversion. They were able to get 753HP out of the Hellcat (stock 707) by converting it and using E85. They now have kits for the Corvette C7, Cadillac STS-V, Challenger and more. Their conversion process takes two days, one working on the vehicle, one on the dyno tuning. I was surprised that the complete package with sensor, fuel fittings, fuel line, and custom dyno tune is only $1,015 for a C7 (example I used). Check them out, if curious or interested: http://www.serioushp.com/. Robert
Hello all, Thus doing okay on 50/50, I decided to upgrade our 2013 Hyundai Elantra so we can drive on straight E-85. Anybody having a 4-cylinder kit laying around that the don't need anymore? I found some used ones, but would rather do business with the people here. I prefer to have a kit from fuelflexinternational (so Jonny, youres are therefor fine) since I used them soley so far with excellent results, but am listening to alternatives. JonnyEnergy, if you read this, send me a PM please, I probably need new connectors. I will verify, looks like we are taking about Nipon Denso, but now even they have 2 different of (pin) configurations. Greetings!
