Well I made it to the destination without any major issues. This cars will put some miles behind quck! 80-90 mph without a problem... there was a minor issue. I had to go back on pump gas because there is no e85 no where in tampa. But john lund ghost cam is so fun lol. I had forgotten about it. Anyways the car is great and I can't wait to make the trip back home for the drive.

One last thing. White paint and bugs suck! I went thru a car wash on a gas station as soon as I got here so the bugs wouldn't stain the paint.

"Pam" on front before long trip in bug season helps, especially Love Bug season. The Nascar Nationwide drivers were using it last night at Iowa to keep rubber from sticking to their grills:shigrin

why would you want to run E85 anyways? Yeah, we don't have it in Tampa, but for the price and loss of milage it makes no sense on a road trip...next time go though Orlando, they have it over there on the turnpike
I run it for pure performance, but wow does milage suck on it..

Did you have to change injectors or fuel lines to run E85? Did you notice a worthwhile increase in power?

100% stock fuel system. I can't tell how much mre power is making. Its very smooth and 29 degrees of timing without knocking is great.

I guess maybe for a long trip only but I'm not sure I'd want to be wearing that goo all the time... I'm envisioning the sprayed parts looking like a flocked Easter bunny after sitting around in my garage with some dust flying around.

My approach is a little less radical, I apply the Griot's Garage Spray wax on liberally after every wash and the bug goo and everything else comes off very easily. Smells great and is easy to use too.

Like the OP since I got my new GT I'm finding road trips are happening lots more often. Imagine that. :bigthumbsup

PS Doesn't the owner's manual state specifically not to use E85?

You can't use e85 with factory calibration. but with an e85 tune it loves to drink e85 and it smells like popcorn.

I use 91 oct and 93 oct w/ 10% ethelnol--I have Bama tunes and use Performance tune 90% of the time--No problems !! If I can't get 93, I put 91 in.. same tune--no difference in the two--This Stang hauls ass regardless,,When I go to Race tune, same thing, I feel some difference, but the performance is still very good--IMHO, I think some of you guys are getting too techjnical, you should just enjoy and stop analizing everything..:nono:
