    I am curious if anyone has had any issues running E85?

    From what I understand with a proper tune you can mix E85 with your reg gas.

    I believe on some vehicles you would also have to change injectors and fuel pumps. From what I was reading it seems like you can get away with stock injectors and pumps on a Raptor?

    Any feedback is appreciated!

    I am! You just have to tune for the blend. You'll have to mix down E85 to E40-50 to keep fueling safe

    can you feel the difference between reg gas and the e85 blend?

    how much e85 do you add ?

    Yep, Running a MPT E-30 tune (30%) and can feel a difference. I was told there was a little more tolerance in my fuel mix with e-30. E-50 should make more power though. Interested in a full e85 setup but am not sure exactly what will be needed.... Pump and something to sort out the octane??

    Does goose also tune n-gauge? I am very happy with MPT but hear lots of good stuff about Goose. Anyone compare??

    I have tried mpt power is good. But heard good stuff of goose and sure enough the power is just more refined, and the dyno proves it.
