Hi, I want to run E85 on a turbo nord running dellorto blow through carbs, an efi fuel pump and malpassi rising rate fuel presure regulator.
Just wanting some feedback from those that may have tried e85 fuel with carbies?
Cheers
George

Why? Is this just a curiosity thing or do have any expectations?
I am having detonation problems, split liners.
E85 is used in racing as it has a higher octane rating than unleaded fuel. I want to try it to prevent detonation at high boost levels.

E85 has 100+ octane rating; good there. My big concern would be corrosion. From what I recall, E85 isn’t recommended for carbureted vehicles. You will more than likely damage the carbs and non-stainless fuel system components in short order.
