I'm pretty sure putting 105 in a car tuned for 95/98 is useless.

If I were you I'd call them and ask if they have any servos in SA with the 107 Race fuel on tap.

Is this E85?

Haven't been in this scene for quite a while, but as I understand, unless the engine has been tuned for E85, it's useless.

It is an ethanol based fuel. I'd never use it in my car. Previously tried an ethanol fuel in a work van and it ran terrible. Switched fuels several times to see if it was a one off and every time I put ethanol in it it ran like a pig. A friend that drives in granny mode all of the time filled her Daihatsu with an ethanol fuel and it blew the engine. Give me antisocial oil based fuel for now. Stick to the BP.

a car/motor bike has to be manufactured so that ethanol fuel can be used...otherwise there's terrible corrosion potential.

I've run it in cars designed for ethanol and it runs fine.

E10, that is, never used E85.

Ducatis and MV's have had their tanks deformed when using ethanol based fuels, a well reported problem.  Not sure if other books have been affected.

Hmm thought I'd ask the question, no way would I use ethanol in the Fezz. Plus the 360 Challenge would melt the foam in the bladder fuel tank.
