was close to empty with the E67 and filled up with 91. gauge is now at 14%. prob wont use the broadway station for a while. will start going to the Valero up where Justin lives. may even try fuel stop on Comanche to see what they got even tho everyone says to stay away from that one.

The tanks are dirty at commanche. Clogged my fuel pump filter and burned up my pump a while back. Sounds like maybe they had a carrier mixed some regular with the e85 tank if it was testing at 60%..which happens occasionally.

I've been seeing perfect AFR with almost no adjustment after filling up at Rio Bravo but I've only been filling up once every two weeks. Maybe I missed the diluted stuff

WOT or cruising?

One thing that surprises me is how well modern computers 'tune themselves' (lame way to describe? heh). I've ran 91 octane on my e85 tune and cruising AFR's were pretty spot on. Drove down to roswell a couple days ago on my 91 tune with almost 1/2 tank of e85 - spot on AFR's.

Most cars can trim up to 25% closed loop long term fuel trims, and 15% short term. That combined can accommodate up to 40% fuel trim which will allow it to run fine in closed loop (cruise/idle on most cars).

Yea, I noticed my fuel trims were at/around -30%. By the time I got to Valero, I had thrown a code. But, it still ran very well, even in heavy stop/go traffic on Alameda.

Valero on McMahon got me up to 69% but I had about a gallon of 91 left in my tank. filled up on broadway with my gauge still showing 69% and once the "E85" hit the rail the number dropped down to 60%. may try fuel stop once this week.

I also run 91 once every few months on my E85 tune to clean out the system, car runs great with no codes. I just dont get into boost.

Both. I'm not seeing any more than 1-2% correction but I made the tune for e70
