Didn't mean to imply "only fun". The path of *most* fun usually involves hospital visits.

You're not pushing the envelope until you break something, that odds part of the fun (often not fun at that moment).

Example: was it "fun" when too prove to my dad you can't break a windshield by pounding with a fist?

(Window cracks into spider web of a dozen cracks)

Not exactly at that moment, but in hindsight is kinda hilarious.

Ahhh... The hospital visits both human, and vehicular. Those are the one that hurt the most!

So I have never used.anything other than premium fuel in my V8 N62
I'm missing something here I feel... Are people saying using E85 fuel in a NA car makes more power?

Yes, your understanding is correct. You’re not missing anything. There will be more torque, cooler head temps, and it will be cleaner burning.

Just curious, does BMW recommend this for newer Bimmers?
First I've ever heard of any Euro car running it. I must be living in a cave as I thought it was just a fuel for domestic cars. Never done any research on it before. Wow.
So are V8 owners doing it too or just IT owners?
And why do you have install/convert things?

I'm not hating, I swear, but I feel this is a "different strokes, for different folks" kinda thing. Backfire on a street vehicle seems immature and even improper maintenance on a vehicle, in my opinion. Just my opinion.

Any vehicle that is port injection will work with this technology.

Euro tuners have been doing ethanol tunes for awhile now.

It doesn’t matter the engine.

Yes, you will need to install the kit. The kit will convert the gasoline engine, to run on ethanol as well.

Never add any fuel other than the manufacturer recommendation, unless the appropriate equipment has been installed to calibrate the fuel trim to the appropriate measure.
