What if you have only 3/8th tank of are in the middle of the desert at the last gas station for the next 325 miles and you want to top off the tank and this particular gas station only has 89 available....will you have a tune specifically to calibrate 3/8 E85-5/8 89 mixture in your tank?

Most stations also have various levels of the GTR we did a flex fuel E85 swap on the computer pics up and displays the E85 content in the tank... all the local stations are only like E70-E75 or some crap...its terrible how some gas stations get away with it.
LOL! First of all, I would never date a girl that high maintenance, and if she was that way she could walk. Second, it's DD'ish; I'm about to get a 2002 Mercury Mountaineer 4.0 V6 from my parents so that will be on DD duty once I get it.

I drive an endangered species...they are being crushed at an alarming rate. Please do your part to preserve the Cougar species, and ensure they live on into the future.

It was snappy, but being in other J-Modded cars using the more common mild to middle settings I wouldn't say mine shifted that much harder, but what it did was shift way faster in addition to it, and not in a way I'd call refined, it almost felt like things were going to break just puttering around town, and it made tuning shift points frustrating. Gave the car character though
Years ago a buddy and I did that on a 5.0 AWD explorer he had. In that situation, given that it couldn't spin the tires when it shifted, yes it did break things pretty quickly. About 5K miles after doing it, he was driving the car down the highway and all of a sudden the trans started locking up randomly. Luckily he got it to the shop, and we had a spare one to swap in, which we then did the mild j-mod to instead of the 450+ setting.
