TBI conversion to FFI

I was wondering if an FFI conversion kit for my TBI would be a good idea. For those who don't know what it is it's that Flex Fuel that motor companies are starting to install onto newer models. It started I believe back in 2006. Anyways, it's a 105 octane ethenol and cheaper then regual unleaded gas. I'm not wanting to do it to save the Earth from "global warming" because I don't believe in that crap. I'm just wondering if I'll get more power and better gas mileage out of the E-85 grade fuel then regular unleaded fuel. Thanks.

Re: TBI conversion to FFI

You will actually have LESS power, and LESS efficiency from E85.

And the ACTUAL rating of E85 is actually about 94.

Don't waste your time. E85 is a joke, and it's only around because of government forcing it, by the representatives from "corn states", and lobbiests.

Don't believe everything you see on TV. Do the research first, and don't buy into the hype.

This article is a good place to start. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/E85

Alright, good enough for me. The conversion kit for my car would cost a whopping $500 and it really doesnt seem worth it. I did more research on it. Thanks.
