Default Superchips map for E85?


In Norway gas prices has reached almost 3 dollars/liter and Im starting to think its time to take opportunity to run the truck on E85. I can get E85 in Sweden for half the price of regular gas.

My truck is a 2007 4.7 Flexfuel RAM, and Im wondering if there is possible to use the Superchips unit while running on E85, or do I have to install the original tune for this to work?

Personally I cant see a problem with running the performance map, since E85 has higher octane than both regular and premium fuel. Or am I wrong?

The only thing that worries me is that it will run lean on E85, since it needs more fuel to travel the same distance, compared to gasoline.

Can anyone verify these statements, as I dont know for sure, and I surely dont want to ruin anything while trying to save some money.
