For better or worse with E85

Special guest Brian Pearson who has been exploring and documenting the use of E85 gas for racing. He wants to break the stereotypes of what people think of this Ethanol based fuel. We will ask him to explain what the pros and cons are for E10, E15 and E85.

His primary research is using E85 in his race car for the Dirt Grand Nationals. His findings are surprisingly positive if it’s administered in the vehicle the correct way. He will share how to make the necessary equipment adjustments– to assure it doesn’t do any harm to the mechanics of the auto.
