Hi guys,
I'm planning to install the ethanol e85 kit from this French manufacturer ( on my 2004 Dodge Ram 1500 and run it on ethanol.

My question is: how will ethanol affect my fuel mileage ?

Could you share your experience ?

Ethanol has about half the energy content of gasoline, so your mileage will be much worse (maybe 17 about MPG) on E85 than E10 (which almost all gasoline is now)

As the above poster said, it doesn't have as much punch as gasoline, so more than likely yer gonna end up paying for more in the end. Luckily, it's cheaper than gas! So, there is that. Plus it smells really nice. Like a night at the bar.
