If you post car questions on a site that is predominately about old bikes you risk getting posts from a lot of old bike nuts. Who ARE getting issues with your wonder fuel. I'm glad that you are glad with your choises. Just unhappy not to have a choise .
Car questions?

Scott TOLD us he runs it in his car and ASKED us if anyone has advice for him using it in his Dommie and Commando.

It could NOT be more ‘modern Norton’ specific if he’d tried!

Perhaps his frustration is caused by people making irrelevant, or at least off topic, comments having not even read his question properly...?!

Hopefully I didn't contribute too heavily to the shitstorm. Was only trying to post facts. I am familiar with an amateur LSR racer who has run 215 mph on his E85 burner. It was he who educated me on the parameters to get more hp out of corn likker. If you are familiar with the downsides, all you have to do is figure out how to pump massive amounts of fuel/air mix into the chambers. To hell with fuel consumption and economy when producing excess bhp.

But if we had the oil production glut we have now when they first started adding ethanol to gasoline, the whole program would never have gotten off the ground. And we wouldn't even be talking about it.

To try and close this one off I notice there is a top level 'Access Norton Pub' for general discussions. I admit to not having used it myself but may I suggest some discussions - not even necessarily heated ones - are subject to 'shall we move this to the pub?'.

Peace and Love friends.

How do I close this thread?
It’s become completely off topic. All it has become is farming, government and a bitch fest of why they don’t like e85.

Nothing resourceful has become of it.
Scott
Ask Jerry or L.A.B. To close it to future comments -the thread then closes!
Have a calm day

Swooshdave had his thread closed on NOC - classic Motorcycles section

That’s the problem!
First you don’t read.
Second it’s not a fucking car question.
3rd it’s still a combustion engine.
This is not the vintage Norton section. It’s the modern Norton section and all you vintage bike owners are clueless. And I never said it was a wonder fuel. But most of you turned this into a political rant.
All you want to do is post or respond your negativity on something you no nothing about. This whole thread became so far off topic it’s useless. Even when I posted articles of actual bikes running on E85 and the benefits they are seeming some of you ignore the facts and turn this into a shit show.

Scott you can’t close a thread that’s got replies to your first post.

Here’s my advice FWIW:

You asked a question that you are clearly getting a zero repsonce to. Thus it seems clear no one on this forum can help with your original question.

Since then, the thread has become an off topic debate about the generic political / principle issues with ethanol fuel, which was not your original question.

And reading this debate is winding you up!

What you do in these cases is simply stop reading and posting on this thread.

That’s what I do, I often say “I’ve said all I have to say and am now signing off from this post”.

And that’s exactly what I do.

It leads to a more tranquil life...
Thank you Eddie.
