Re: Edelbrock settings I have used



Your input sounds logical. I'm just wondering if the lack of a closed system like FI leads to a bigger evaporation problem. The ethanol vaporizes quite rapidly it seems.

Do you mind if I question this, Rich?

"I wasn't able to find non-ethanol after I left Kansas until I got back to Colorado on the return. That would be suspect to decrease the mileage as ethanol requires more fuel. For example if I use E-85 in my flex-fuel Durango I will get about 18-20percent worse gas mileage. A bit more power though it seems. E-10 would not make that much difference obviously."

My understanding is that modern cars, those with injection and engine management and sensors all over the place use more fuel when there's Ethanol in the mix.

This is because their sensors in the exhaust find too much oxygen in the burned mixture and richen the mixture to compensate. Hence there is more fuel used.

Carburettors and systems without sensors changing the settings shouldn't be affected.

Or have I got the wrong information?
