Some rangers already can use E85. They are the 'flex fuel' ones.

If you want to get the full advantage of the E85 that would require and alcohol friendly fuel system, and higher compression internals or forced induction.

you still don't get to eat the whole pie. A little bit of advance and a little bit leaner but thats all.

Only 87

Anything higher in a stock engine is money out the window and more junk build-up in your engine. Just because you THINK something adds HP or adds performance, doesn't mean IT REALLY does. You'll just be tromping down on the pedal harder anyway..............such a waste of money.

Anyone out there that likes using anything higher then 87 grade fuel in their stock engines can stop wasting their money, just PayPal it to me instead.

I run 87 nothing else. I can run E-85 but I think its a huge waste of money and not worth the low price.

My new Ranger has a "No E85" on the gas cap, and it says it suggest BP gas.. BP gas station around here are folding up. I've used Kiwk Trip gas for many years, and have good luck with it. on my last fill, I had 27mpg.

I know that there already is flex fuel ones.

Besides the injectors, what else would you need to convert a non-flex fuel one?
