Yes. I hate the fact that there is one pump at the Sunol Super Stop that works. Of course the e85 pumps don't have the long hoses that will reach across the car :frown: Fortunately it's usually easy access early in the early morning.

Sunol is the most ghetto e85 station Iíve been to in California.

And the fact that random people will fill up at the e85 pump when other 87 pumps are available is pretty frustrating lol.

I think smog laws have got a lot better. I mean all we need to do is do a visual and obdii readiness check. I think we don't have to smog until the 6th year too. As a 2013 BRZ owner, I have yet to smog my car. I think I will need to do it next year for the first time.

------------

As for E85, my app says there is an E85 station in Napa. Can anyone confirm this is the case, that it isn't something reserved for industrial or commercial use only?

Will be checking out the Napa station on my way back from the airport to go home on Friday (Live North of Napa). It's a brand new station located off 29.

See this link for E85 Stations for those that don't have "an app for that":

The station is on Devlin Road off Highway 29, South of Napa proper not too far from the airport. Two pumps with E85. As I was taking the picture of pump a guy in a Black 2013 BRZ pulled up, but did not use the E85. I was there in my FJ.

There is a convenience store there, as the station is nearly new, it's ok. Got snacks for after my trip. Brie cheese & crackers. Both were fresh. Does this qualify as "ghetto"?

I guess now I will be adding Flex Fuel to my build?
