Get your facts correct people; it's a 15% to 20% mpg hit on low performance engines. You will see a 5% to 10% decrease on mpg on high performance engines such as ours. Match this with cooler running engines, better lubrication (no olefins such as in gas) no carbon build-up on pistons, rings, injectors, plugs; expect to double if not tripple your engine life!!!! oh and more power as most of you mentioned.
I will be installing a FFI fuel flex international kit on my 2001 CLK320 this week and will let you know what I find on the items listed above. A gas station on route 109 on Long Island will be selling E85 this week.
BTW, it is a complete myth that the ehtanol in E85 (not methanol) will destroy your gas line.
BTWW, don't you mean ECM not PCM? Either way, how can I update (reprogram) my ECM for more HP? I have seen ECM upgrades in magz and online, but don't trust them.
All the best!
