Default Racing fuel, E85 mix ratio - 07-12-2018, 05:14 AM

So what would be a mixing ratio?
I can get 100 octane from sunoco @ $10/gal
And E85 @ much cheaper. Payam tood me to use 3gal of E85 and rest 93. And it ran ok.
I was wondering with the 100octane. Do i mix it with 93? At what ratio? Or just use straight. Please help

Is the sunoco 100 octane from a pale or the pump? I would only stick to 5 gal pale if you want to do racegas. If you got VP MS109 near you, that would be best for racing. Not ideal for daily though.

I don't usually have the best luck with pump. The fuel usually sits for a long time, and I've had logs where 100 octane from the pump is worse than the 91 octane I had lol.
