yes but unless you have an engine thats tuned with a fuel system designed for E85 you will do more damage then good. alcohol eats rubber seals and gaskets that normal gasoline fuel systems use. plus the fuel mixture has to be completely changed since the stoichiometric ratio of E85 is somewhere near 9:1 where gasoline is 14.7:1

I dont know what it takes to run it. But I know there are a few guys running it in the Holland area in carberated vehicles. I aslo know my father in law and a few of his friends run it in race carts with briggs animals in them. I am not sure if they are mixxing it with reg gas tho.

Gaylord has it at the gas station next to the sled shed and Houghton Lake use to carry it, not sure if they still do.

You can search the Sunoco website for stations that carry race fuel.

Gaylord still has it. its on the side pumps. Boyne city has it also but only in the summer. Both are 110. Gaylord sells torco. Boyne City has a different brand and usually switches every two years.
