    Virtual FlexFuel has some fun aspects to it. If you plan to switch between E60 and E10, invest the ~$100 in a real ethanol sensor and wire it up. There are full plug n play kits available for ~$300 for sensor/wiring/fuel line adapters as well. No more guessing or worrying about the ECM sticking with the wrong Ethanol % in the tune...

    Glad you're making progress!

    Thanks you Erik and I will strongly consider that! I am planning to stick with E80 at all times, however due to lack of availability and / or an emergency that's a great idea

    Thank you, friend! Currently having a new issue with FP dropping to 40 momentarily at WOT & high RPM - I am worried about a dirty FP sock in the tank so switching back to 93 to see if it was the ethanol.

    Cheers to you mate !!!

    We are letting life take it's course while my lady is studying for college law and ASE exams and I am on unpaid teacher holiday, we built 3 cammed LS in our driveway in 6 months. Now we have 1.5 days to race each other untuned

    This Friday truck lady vs. Holden cop car both snaggle toothed and funky - hopefully high 8s
