no replacement fuel pump? according to what I've read / been told the stock fuel pump in my 2010 is not E85 compatible.
Plus the increased flow needed would be a problem...if it was a bone stock 5.7 maybe...

flow i could see being an issue...


E85 damaging a pump I would say no. I have had a Honda running e85 for about 8 years now it has 335k miles on it with the original pump. Just this year its not holding pressure after shut down and I will probably change it out. Car still run performs the same. Still could be an injector leak or my guage hook up leaking the check valve in the pump not holding.


I also run e85 alot on my old 440 with the regular cam driven fuel pump and its hangin on there as well not problems. I pulled the tank on this 6 months ago steel looked brand new inside. I just dont see all the bad thing we read about e85 corroding everything. I think that people that confuse it with other alcohols like methanol. one you can drink one you cant!

finally caught up with customer cars and my day job...time to start on my project...
I'm going to mock up all the parts on the workbench prior to installation.
Hopefully it'll be burning E85 by Easter.

really? I live in central Texas (Ft Hood) and the local HEB has quality E-85
I know a guy that was PCSd to Alaska (where E85 is hard to find I'm guessing??) and started ordering them in 50 gallon drums.

edit: one thing I am going to do (once I get the swap completed) is keep a laptop with me for trips. If I can't find E85 I'll drop a backup 93 tune in.

need a little help: how do I get the fuel lines up to the driver side tank?
There is virtually no room between the tank and the surrounding sheet metal.
Will i need to drill holes and trim sheet metal?
I am probably going to install the pump with the stock lines first, then once I get the lines in place and cut to length swap over.

Any help is appreciated.

Can't the existing lines be used? I thought most folks just ran different pumps for E85 conversion? I remember Speedies Garage had some images or vid showing an install of a dual fuel pump hat. Maybe some of the pics will help. Too bad the forum blocks out the site.
