E85

The current time trial rules restrict no-points compression ratio mods to 0.5 or less. Is that any different for cars running E85? Should there be provision for TT engines running E85? Is there anyone doing this right now? Thanks.

You would need to take the compression ratio points if you go more than 0.5 regardless of which fuel you are using.

Cool, I figured as much. Hard to enforce though.

E85 from a commercial source is allowed, no home brewing

Yep. Ya'll were one of the reasons I started looking at it. Any advice for an aspiring E85 user? Beyond investing in a barrel dolly?

Don't forget these, if you're not already taking the points on your gasoline engine:

C6) Non-BTM or modified carburetor, fuel rail, fuel injectors, fuel pump(s), and/or fuel pressure regulator +2 (no points for

fuel pump alone if using BTM fuel and timing maps, sensor inputs and ignition timing)
