    That is cool if they adhere to the national standard. Supply and demand always come into play.

    What do you expect your mileage to be? E85 has less yield in NA engines. I suspect the same in the charged motor.

    Conserv Fuel on San Vincente/Barrington in Brentwood sells e85. Mileage should be negligible up to e45, beyond that and it may suffer. I don't plan on running straight e85 BTW, there's no point with the stock turbo. I will have the maps listed in razorlab's guide with the addition of a valet mode. A Cobb Protune is also in the cards at a later date.

    Here's on older photo at the station just to show the price differences. e85 is at the bottom :)

    Kind fuzzy, but it's a shot of the harness from the ethanol sensor to the hole in the firewall.

    Another angle.

    Next was to route the new harness over to the passenger side. I used an 8 gauge wire used to fish the harness through to the other side behind the center console. hmm... I just noticed I still have the protective sheathing on the gas pedal.

    The harness in it's new home on the passenger side behind the glove box.

    And a shot of the harness in it's final resting spot on the driver side.

    Test fitting the connections with between harness and Zeitronix ECA-1 Analyzer before shrink tubbing each connection and stuffing it into the wire loom.

    Connections with shrink tubing to keep the connections together and insulated from the other connections.

    I attached the Add-A-Fuse into the moonroof fuse location. I don't have a moonroof, but there was already of fuse in there and made perfect choice at 7.5 amps.

    Here's where I connected for ground.

    Testing the connections was successful. The car has 91 octane with 10% ethanol.

    Awesome placement and fitment!

    Now for the trash talk:

    You have a holder for a pen in your glove box! REALLY! That's anal. Just messing with you because I like your work.

    You should have one too, it's stock. I use it, it comes in handy. :)

    So, you are saying the dealer screwed me out of a pen holder. Damn them! :mad:

    I want a refund! I will ask for one come my first oil change.

    When did you pick up your car? I bought mine October 19th, 2014. I have 4900 on mine. I guess I drive mine more.

    March 2014. I parked the FiST and was driving my e28 for awhile . I also ride a sport bike.

    Clean E28. Let me know if you need any parts (maintenance) for it. Some of the parts maybe discontinued for the E28 already. The company I work for started in 1962 selling European parts. I've also done some research on European brand filters that fit the FiST. We carry Mann+Hummel, Mahle, Hengst, and Purflux.

    Thanks, I'll keep that in mind. The car is an '85 and we've had it since then. I began restoring it in '09 when I sold my Evo VIII. It's been slow, but rewarding working on the e28. I consider it's build quality a tank. It's served me well as a daily driver and has never left me stranded.

    Those were the golden ages of European cars. 1980's Mercedes and BMWs are tanks. I have a 1988 300TE wagon that has 250,000 miles. I call it the battle wagon. It takes a lot of work to keep them running like a clock, but in between maintenance, they run without issues.
