    Hey everyone! I have a quick question!! So my tundra is flex fuel and i was wondering when i could fill it up with e85 to test it. Should i run it almost completely empty or would it be ok to fill it up with it at a little less than a quarter tank? Thanks for the help!

    I would never run e85, but that's just me. It dirties up the motor faster. Toyota recommends oil changes at 2500 mile intervals if you use it.

    I agree with truckytruck. You don't want to put the shit in your engine. Not worth it, it's cheaper but you get less MPG's.

    I would only use Flex Fuel when nothing else is available. Oh wait... Piss may be less of a problem. heh heh. I like Iowa, especially Iowa beef, but hate my tax dollars used to subsidize a very inefficient fuel. Subsidized means exactly that. Inefficient. Corn needs to be used to feed people (and beef). IMHO of course.
