    I despise E85. plus ive never seen it on the water. I dont see any use for it. Can make plenty of power without it. You would have to add another 30% in fuel to go the same distance also. Just my Opinion

    I have a lot of experience with E85 and tuning etc....but not in marine use.

    The good:
    - Very high octane! With the right tune, you can make great power.
    - Has much less phase separation issues with water.

    The bad:
    - Blends are very inconsistent. Changes seasonally and so does the octane.
    - Has about 30% less btu value. This means you need to consume more fuel.
    - In all likelihood you will need bigger fuel injectors.

    conclusion, unless you are racing don’t bother. And if you are racing, there are better fuels to use.

    I know of a ski that was setup to run E85
    It had 2,000 cc injectors
    And used fuel so fast it needed a bigger breather fitted to the tank
