Mustang 2007 E85 long term update

I have been running E85 for 6 months now with absolutely no issues whatsoever. I recently removed my CMCV plates only to find them absolutely spotless. No oil and no corrosion on any of the surfaces. The fuel filter was replaced and there are no signs of corrosion as well.

Now that it's cooling down I loaded my E70 tune. The power output feels to be identical. I just paid 1.58 a gallon for ethanol and I am still averaging about 20 mpg in Dallas traffic.

Sounds like all the E85 concerns may have been a little premature.
