    The Speedway near Lidio on 23 Mile has always had good e85 according to him. Thats where I filled up before he tuned my car.

    Great thanks. I'm wondering if anyone has personally done any recent testing in the area

    Also have the E85 tune from Lidio and very happy with it. I am near Chelsea Mi and tested the stations I normally use last week. They were both about 77%. I know June 1st is the date they have to go full E85 but hoping they go early.

    I am surprises they actually tested that high already- their next 2 batches should have their tanks up to 85+. question why is it blue in the tube, mine is always clear, did you add a dye?

    Yes. Had the dye from another ethanol test kit. Makes it a little easier to see.

    Any updates as May approaches?

    Edit: I just called Brenner Oil out of Holland, Mi. They deliver the fuel to all Meijer stations and he said they just switched to e80 a couple weeks ago and that the lowest they ever distribute is e75. That’s great to know.

    Had a chance to get out today and test the same two stations in/near Chelsea. They are now both at 85%

    Some concern about the quality of some E85 in Southeast Michigan, specifically the Macomb County area. This is from Alternative's FB page. Cliff notes=Looks like some bad E85 came from the Meijers from Hall Rd and Hayes, make sure you test you fuel.
