E85 locally is never a true E85. Curious if anyone has the Sunoco E85-R? I am looking to mix it in for some special occasion fun runs.

 

or is it better to just regular race fuel blended in?

Why not ignite red - they all cost about the same and it’s 90 (114 octane)

I have no feedback for Sunoco E85 but I can say that I use VPs X85 with great results! 👍

Sunoco E85R is around $500 for a 55 gallon drum. Our local petroleum supplier sells 55 gallon drums of E98 for $250 delivered. Would it be cheaper to cut your own E85 using an E98 base?

That's a great price for 55 gallons shipped. Comes to around $4.55/gallon. I haven't been able to get the price under $6/gallon...and that's with buying 220 gallons at a time.

Its similar to X85 from VP. More consistent Ethanol content compared to pump e85. If you want to make power I would use Ignite Red, x98, or One Ethanol R
