Default E85 51% - 12-27-2021, 06:50 PM

Wondering if this is common to all pumps in the US? Or do other states have another minimum percentage. I'm south of Atlanta.

That is pretty common.

Make sure you test the content before you use it, it's likely over 51%

Very common. I don't know the exact regulations by state, but "E85" typically varies from about 50-83%. As far as I'm aware, actual 85% ethanol at a pump would be very rare to find as 83% is typically the high-end.

As already mentioned - testing is the best way to confirm. Most E85 is likely somewhere in the 70-80% ballpark. Some stations in colder states may get lower ethanol in the winter (50-60%'ish) due to concerns/issues with cold-starts on heavy E85 mixes.
