    There was even a guy that took wants his car to a maaco it was a Lexus and those people were that dumb that they didn't what correctly the bumper cuz they broke the clips that hold the bumper and when the guy was driving the bumper went flying off and when the guy look at the car he found Glue where the bumper was at so what they just did was they just glue the bumper and the guy went back to claim his morning and then they told him that they were going to put a new bumper and when he saw the bumper it wasn't even a OEM it was a aftermarket one so those people don't even put OEM Parts they put aftermarket cheap ones

        It tried looking this up and I never found this was a possiblity, WTF! A certain guy and those farmers, should have put a warning. The guy next to me did not even say you can not use this. I was distracted by all these snotty little liars that I never knew this. There is the 88 fuel and it mentions to not use it. It is Kum & Go people, they are guilty, they know they sold this bad gas.

            This is hilarious; ive been running e85 on stock pump, stock lines on many cars for ages. Id think over a decade of use on stock pumps can be considered fine. Never seen any e85 corrosion

                  I've been using ethanol, 10% to 100%, for twenty years in all 9 of my motorcycles. Air quality is the reason. Some of us DO care. Works fine. Does that make me stupid?

                      I wonder if E85 components will last longer while using regular gas blends that contain up to 10% or 15% ethanol.

                                    In Brazil, people buy flexfuel cars which works with both E25-E27 gasoline and E100 ethanol. Their fuel autonomy is crappier compared to monofuel cars.

                                    Flexfuel cars are like shampoo & conditioner 2 in 1. It's not good to drive with gasoline, neither with ethanol.

                                          Not to mention E 85 is not worth nearly as much as regular gasoline because of the lesser amount of energy it contains.

                                            With E-85, you may not get more miles per gallon - but you will get more smiles per gallon. Like racing gas lol

                                                            Hey Scotty, I love your videos, I have learned alot from them. It's not everyday you get a great mechanic who is honest and enjoys what they do. I have a question, in recent videos you have said the manual transmission last longer than automatic, and I have a friend who works on cars, has mentioned that hybrid cars last a long time too, so does that mean that a manual hybrid will double the longevity of the car??

                                                              1.) Buy a 4 cylinder 1.6 or 1.8 cylinder car, very few of us need the behemoths we drive around in.

                                                              2.) Walk or cycle more, in most major North American cities, schools, grocery stores, banks, medical facilities, restaurants are mostly within 2 to 3 miles.

                                                              3.) Don’t just drive to one place, hit multiple places in the same vicinity instead of making separate trips a couple days later.

                                                              4.) Turn off the AC, roll down the windows.

                                                              5.) Keep your car well maintained with proper tune ups, proper tire pressure, air filter changes, etc.

I have a 9-5 which was not BioPower (FlexiFuel) originally. It was upgraded as BioPower model once it had 150 000 km behind. Right now I have 255 000 km behind and going strong.

Here in Australia the powers that be are even trying to make us use E10. With the increase in fuel consumption is a bit rich when you look at how much we pay here. Great video I don’t know how many times I’ve had the same conversation

                                                                                          If asking him if he knows about it is stupid then you are stupid for watching because the whole point of this show is to see what he knows about cars and help you.

Most people aren't changing permanently, hence why the model of car was included as many people drift/track those cars. They run E85 for track days then switch back to premium. Your ignorance on this subject is astounding.

The fuel pump and lines don't have any trouble handling it at all. I've been running E85 in my FRS for a few years with zero issues. I'll occasionally run through a couple of tanks of 93 and put in some fuel system cleaner just to be safe. Some benefits of E85 are more power, almost no knock, and lower exhaust temps.

The main thing is you have to run the right tune with the right fuel. Never try running E85 with a gasoline tune and vice versa.
