BAMA Tune and Ethanol Questions

Hi gang, sorry if this has been asked a million times already.

I have a BAMA tuner and hae been running the 87H and 91H tunes on it for a couple months now. All good although I hope to get around to datalogging one of these days.

Today I went to fill up and my local station had switched the 87 octane to 10% ethanol blend. They also has 89E and normal 91. I'm using the 87 hybrid tune currently, so I went down the street, the next gas station still had normal 87 but had switched thier mid-grade to 97E, and thier high grade to 91E (or maybe someone mis-placed the 10% ethanol sticker on the pump).

I did some digging and I guess normal 87 is on it's way out here in Nebraska. Am I correct in assuming this will mess with my tune? Should I request a 10% ethanol tune from BAMA or am I just out of luck? I suppose I could switch to 91 permanently (assuming it doesn't go away too) but I like the CAI's note better with the 87 tune for some reason.

ALSO, last time I visited this site there were some great stickys with info about tunes (I learned of the hybrid tune from here) and the stuff about adaptive shifting and fuse #47. What happened to those? It didn't turn out that those had bad side effects or anything did it?

Thanks in advance!
