    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.

    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.
