  7. Thumbs up Pure Gas - no ethanol added (where to find it)

    I got this link from a different forum I'm on, and it's proven useful. Basically, if you want max fuel economy you have to find fuel that is 100% petroleum with no ethanol added. Ethanol-free fuel is getting hard to find, especially with anti-pollution laws being passed to increase the percentage...

  9. Our AFB class 6 is switching to E10 and no more regular unleaded at all

    What kind of effect should I expect from this change? :/ I have already seen many spouses on our base's FB page very upset with this and say their vans perform subpar at best with E10. Thank you in advance!

  10. What happened to Chrysler ENVI vehicles?

    I am the type of person that NEEDS a minivan, not my first choice in vehicle - but with 3 busy kids, a big dog, and the constant busyness of our lives, only a minivan will get the job done. I have had dodge or chrysler vans for along time. I remember my first one, back when they were all boxy and...

  11. Anyone run E85 in their minivan?

    Local stations just started selling E85, since my van is flex-fuel I though I'd give it a try, but before I do I'd like to see who's running/ran it and what kind of results they've gotten. It's cheaper then regular 87 octane, but from what I've heard you get less MPG from E85.

  14. Hydrogene

    People try this on her caravan? I try it but not in my van and that works. The only problem is the amperage, for have a good performance of hydrogene they must take a lot of current.

  15. E-85 Going Away?

    http://www.twincities.com/news/ci_16044394?source=rss It wouldn't hurt my feelings a bit as far as corn based ethanol is concerned. Switch grass plans were apparently ignored or didn't work. Maybe Vera Sun is a perfect example of how the whole thing will pan out. (Vera Sun went bankrupt)

  16. 08 3.8 and E85

    Hi all, I have a 2008 T&C with the 3.8 engine. While I know this is not a flex fuel, which really bums me out, I am wondering if anyone has tried E85 with this engine and what the results were. Thanks. Josh
