E85 needs special fuel lines and and all rubber/plastic seals and o-rings must be replaced with versions which are E85 compliant. The ignition timing needs to be altered (easy) as does the ignition advance curve (likely difficult). You may also need a different grade of spark plug and possible changes to the carb jetting (very difficult to get right without access to a dynamometer equipped rolling road).
In short, unless you're having a major rebuild incorporating E85 from the outset and you're happy to experiment with various settings then avoid using E85 altogether as it can cause significant damage. On vehicles certified for use with E85 it's no problem at all.
They have a big deal going on with ethanol mixes, any car will burn E85, any car will run, it may not run perfect. The sensors are not set for ethanol, and neither are the computers. Unless it is a flex-fuel car. They did a test with a new suburban, ran it on e85, (85% ethanol) and then stripped it down to see what happened. They said it was cleaner than most in some places. Nothing damaged. If people knew this and had the fuel in their town, they would be buying it. I was afraid to run the E15, because of the rumors I heard.
doubt it is a fuse,could be,but i would check the speed sensor under the vehicle at the transmission,it will be a plug in with 2 or 3 wires going in to it,it will be on the side of the trans.towardthe rear of it.
A gasoline/ethanol mixture containing 85% ethanol and 15% gasoline. The
number after the E is the percent of the mixture that is ethanol. So E10
is 10% ethanol and 90% gasoline. Ethanol, of course, is the type of
alcohol in beer and fun drinks.
