Re: Ethanol for the R (Racerx)

Gasohol, like many alternative fuels, has a higher specific gravity than standard fuels. So will the fuel delivery system on a standard vehicle be able to compensate for this?

Re: Ethanol for the R (Racerx)

I believe most of the regular gasoline vehicles are made to be able to take gasoline with up to 10% alcohol content. E85 being 85% alcohol and 15% gasoline is definitely out of the question for regular gasoline vehicle. There are some conversion kits out there to convert regular gasoline to flex fuel vehicle.

Below is one example. Don't know if it will work on the Volvo
