Cool E85 dilute with water.
I've read that e85 can be supplemented up to 25% with water to reduce consumption.
Has anyone tried it in practice?

If more than 6% water is added, then the ethanol separates from the gasoline as a floating layer (gasoline on top).
First is spent driving with ethanol until the layer is empty then followed by the gasoline layer.
FlexiFuel vehicles know the difference between ethanol and gasoline itself.

Happy new year

RE: E85 dilute with water.
Today I did the test with the petrol generator 2300/2000 watts.
A run consisted of 900W power used by the hot air fan and a brief test with 1700 watts.
the tests are only with gasoline, then e85 with 0% water, E85 with 3%, 5%, 10%, 15%, 20%, 25%, 50%

From 10% water, it can't deliver the 1700 watts and has stopped when i wait to long.
10% still 1500 watts, 15% still 1400, 20% still 1200.
With 25% water the generator shut off 3 times in 4 minutes even for 900W.
E85 with 50% water, the generator was not working.

RE: E85 dilute with water.
As per me, the only place where E85 makes any sense at the moment is in performance cars where the motors where built to run on higher octane. For instance, My twin turbo cutlass motor was designed to run 10 psi on 93 pump gas.

50cc scooter is very useful for get a mileage.
