    Doesn't every Meijer have E85? I usually get it there since I see people actually getting it there, so I hope that makes it more reliable. I never trust the stuff from the offbrand stations down on 8 mile that might not sell it very often.

    Closest to me (in Clarkston) is the Shell station at Grange Hall/I-75.

    Not sure how much you need but I have a full 55 gallon drum and can spare some if you just need a tank full. Let me know.

    There was some discussion last month about E85 quality on Alternative's FB page. Seems someone got some bad E85 from the Meijer at Hall and Hayes. Cliff notes are to know your stations but more importantly test often. Something most E85 users know very well.

    When you talk about quality - do you mean in terms of % of Ethanol? The biggest risk I see worry about is that it gets too much moisture in it which is why I like a place that sells a lot of it. For a street car running E85, it should have the flex sensor, and it won't really care if you get 51% or 85%. In fact, at 51% you are probably getting a better deal for a regular car since you are getting more gasoline at a cheaper price.

    But yea, if you are running a boosted car without a flex sensor, you could run into some real trouble if you are tuned to 85% and you get 51%. I think at that point I would probably be buying it by the barrel too.
