    It's gonna be cheaper and ethanol fuel has less harmful emissions. But mostly just to subsidize corn growth for absolutely no reason. Either way, E15 is out of tuning range for lots of stuff, gotta run a lot more of it since ethanol is less volatile than gasoline and many injection systems wont have the extra headroom

    I don't know of any refineries in WA, I'm sure there's at least one. Our gas is almost as cheap as Idaho's where I live and I have an ethanol free pump very close, only like a mile

    Gas is like 30 cents more in Vernal than it is in SLC, and then WY is like 30 cents cheaper than SLC

    Something like that

    e15 is more resistant to burn. these old cars are not designed to run on it. it kills fuel mileage and performance

    I explained it earlier. Ethanol has a different stoichiometic point. The car tunes for it wrong because it doesn't understand that it is less volatile fuel

    I'm excited the Z (after the new ECU) will be the first thing I've owned with CAN bus. So many peripherals you can run with just those two wires.

    its a neat system. absolute nightmare to deal with sometimes. but a simple system when you dont overthink it.

    dealing with a BEAN system toyota use to use was more of a pain in my opinion

    We dont fuck with can bus. We use different systems for monitoring and controlling. Well i guess it is a Can system. It uses a single controller to monitor and control every aspect of the system.

    Which sucks because im kinda sub par when it comes to using a computer and programming. So its a big learning curve. Especially when i gotta learn like 5 different systems
