@Steve could you add to each what ethanol % they are capable of? And which lpfp we'd need for what %?

We've added more information on that. If you are running E85 you need to run a stage 2 or stage 3 depending your horsepower goals. Stage 1 is not compatible with E85 or covered under warranty for use with E85 by the manufacturer. We see some of those burn up over time when used with E85.

Bumping this since there have been a few questions about running E85 lately.

Also need to continue updating it.

Hey Steve, was wondering what the advantage was of running the FPR, can a return line fitting be added to my pump easily, and is there a way to setup to view ethanol content via JB4 mobile while still using methanol? Thanks

I'm not sure what pump you have. Are you running a Stage 3 and port injection? If so, what port injection kit is it?

No, the 255 is run inline with your stock pump. You would need to order a complete Stage 2 as it is a complete plug and play swap for your stock pump (and the 255) that eliminates the need for the inline pump and is E85 compatible.

I have everything listed in my signature. When I ordered from you at the time, I wasn't planning to go PI so it wasn't really a concern. But now that I have practically every bolt on other than PI, I am now considering it. Just trying to figure out the setup I would need and a better understanding of things like the FPR so when I decide to follow through with it, I will know what I should order.

Sorry, didn't read the signature. Email us at info@fuel-it.com and we'll get you taken care of. It's not a big deal.

Same thing...email us and we can give you a couple options.

Yes, Stage 2 is complete PnP swap for the stock pump.

Does the Stage 2 pump by itself (no PI) offer any benefit? Allow more E content?

F series N55.

It depends on the condition of your stock pump and how well your stock pump is keeping up. However with the F-series, the HPFP is the biggest limitation. In addition the Stage 2 is E85 compatible.

If installing a stage 2 and wanting to run e40 and e60 fuel do you also need to do the fuel lines?

No, most that are running the fuel lines on stock turbo's do so because they are running an ethanol sensor.

I just ordered a stage 2 lpfp ( no pi or tbi) for my f10 n55. Can anyone give me just a rough estimate of how much e i can run before the hpfp is maxed out? I realize only logging will tell for sure. Im looking for a ballpark number to start. Maybe e50? I run around e30 on stock lpfp. (4.5 gallons e85 and the rest 93)

My understanding is that the stage 2 lpfp alone does not allow you to actually run more E. If I'm wrong I will be a happy camper though

It will be best to log and post those up in the support section. Now that you will be running an E85 rated pump, once you max out the stock HPFP, if you want to run higher mixes, port injection will be the next step.

Do you guys still recommend TBI for a goal of 600whp or naw?

Dont forget that our Canadian gas is rated in Ron. US gas is API.
So 94 Ron rating is 91 US at best.

600 would be the most we would recommend but that would require and low ethanol mix. Straight E85 is going to max out at about 500-525whp with TBI. That will also vary based on target AFR's.

Need some advice for my goals/setup. I am running a 6466 on 93 only and planning to add meth. What pump should I run to get the most out of this setup. No e85 or port injection for me at the moment.
Thanks

Stage 2 will be sufficient to max out your HPFP and is a simple plug and play swap.

That's actually not true....
Canadian and American fuel is rated in AKI (anti knock index) which is (Ron+Mon)/2, not API whatever that means.
94 octane in Canada varies alot from fuel station brand to fuel station brand, some Canadian 94 acts like US 91. Some act like true 94 and surpass US 93.

Personally I prefer Husky 94.

Hey Steve,
Do you guys offer inline fuel filters? I used to have one that filtered down to something like 1-4 microns.
Thanks,
