Thread: E85 - Will I run out of injector?

    Very true Danny, I’m probably just more interested in the correlation between the figures. I was actually expecting the duty cycle to be higher, so I’m actually quite surprised. About 90% is as far as I’d want to push them, is this correct? Thanks.

    Yeah, 90% IDC or a little more.

    OK, I had a chance today to give it a run on straight E85. Injector duty cycle was 88%, 7200 RPM, so tight but good.
    AFR target was 12.5 on gasoline scale and I noticed the actual was 11.8 on the datalog, but it was the first full run with a clear Learn Table.
    Car is noticeably more responsive and I’ve left the timing the same as it was for the 50/50 mix, so still room to move. Happy days.

    AFR target for E85 is richer than gasoline.
    E85 Stoichiometric 9.765
    E85 Max Power Rich 6.975
    E85 Max Power Lean 8.469

    Gaz64, I’m using the gasoline scale which will still be correct as the Sniper runs off Lambda anyway. My gasoline AFR WOT is 12.8 (.87 Lambda), so I set it at 12.5 (.85 Lambda) for E85 on the gasoline scale which is around 8.3 on E85.
    I’m not really sure what AFR to aim for, but I know generally it’s a bit richer. The first pull did run around 11.8 AFR (.80 Lambda, 7.8 E85 AFR) and ran well, maybe I leave it around 11.8 to 12.2, not 100% sure yet. I guess all I know is it’s capable of using E85, and I’ll speak to my tuner in regards to mixtures. Thanks Chris.
