I read that too. I'm a huge proponent of E-85 for the most part (although I can't find it at any local stations) but I find this hard to belive. EtOH is a less dense energy source than regular gas ... period. They would have to work some real magic to make it preform at well as gasoline IMO. If the tune could make EtOH get that kind ofimprovment then there would really be no reasonable argument against it.

In this regard I'll belive it when I see it.
