45K miles on e85

Well, I have an issue from e85. It's a simple fix, but something did come up from using it. My downpipe gasket and manifold gaskets were compromised. I replaced, but will happen again? I run 60%+ E85. WIll reduce to 40-50% here forth.

END OF LINE

what does this have to do with running e85? ethanol will never touch this. also got my last blackstone with 5k + autocrosses and it was super clean.

The only downside I heard of was possibly needing more frequent oil changes

but chances are most you hot shoes are already swapping oil every 10k, or once every three months or if you get bored.

I did hear about one of our drivers blowing out his cat but im also positive that normal 91 oct or e85 woulda done that...(dude races in the 86 cup and his high flow catted header became a hi flow uncatted)

Hahahah. SMH Nothing at all, mOve along.

... I found a Lucas product for e85 stablization. Recommended for every fill-up (i'm going every other) and safe for all mixtures. Green bottle #10576, I believe. I don't have it with me, it's in the whip. Anyhow, looking at thicker (Grimspeed) gaskets made of steal to arrive.
