    Does your state mandate 10% ethanol to begin with? I'm already putting 1.6 gallons of 100% ethanol in every tank, here in Metro New York :)

    I put about 2 gallons in to top off my tank with 93 octane with 10% ethanol. I do this once every couple months - good for keeping it clean too!

    I have used 50-50% E85 to gasoline with no issues in my '14 SHO. I could probably go higher but mpg goes down. 45/55% ratio and there is no reduction in fuel economy.

    The issue is when you are tuned... in sure stock can handle a pretty heavy dose.... if you are tuned, you need to be tuned for E to take advantage...
