Wait... you put E85 in it??? E85 is 85% ethanol, and cars are specially made for it. My truck for instance has a sensor in the fuel line to meter the amount of ethanol in it so it can change fuel/ignition maps when running E85 vs E10 vs regular gas. Places in the states that run ethanol in the regular pumps currently only use 10 percent ethanol and is referred to as E10. The E85 pumps should be separate.
Mine runs like a top. No issues. Buy it. now.
