e-20, e-30 question
« on: March 17, 2012, 12:30:52 PM »
Im stuck in northern Iowa with no 91 fuel. they have e-20 and e-30. Anyone ever use e-20 or e-30 to get buy? I see e-20 is about 91 and e-30 is 95. I do realize it burns faster and requires more fuel like e-85. My question is,do i run the e-20 till i can find some 91 on the way home and just cross my fingers? I have the cobb ap plugged in and keeping a watch on things and also have a wideband. what do you guys think?

run the e20, load a economy map on the AP, and try and stay out of boost until you can get more octane.

i almost seem to the same amount of boost on the economy map as the stage 2. even climbing some hills coming here i never went over 1 to 2 lbs of boost. most of it was between omaha and desmoins. i hate to ask what you just told me but here it is. should i really load the economy mode? I just had to ask. lol
Are we talking a lean issue with e-20? what is it actually going to cause and what should i monitor the most coming back? thanks, curt

e20 could cause a lean issue, but it should be well within the ECU's ability to compensate in closed loop. Stay out of boost.
the bottom line is this, people just need to realize that when they buy cheap CO's [KW on down], they are buying cheap, poorly engineered shocks for the sake of having height adjust-ability. - whitetiger on legacygt.com
