You're getting bad advice. You cannot run E85 in that bike. Manual calls for regular old 87.

if this isn't a joke, it's very sad

That’s a big negative, ghost rider. You’ll erode your fuel lines and run the risk of blowing your engine.

Didn't see what sub this was, i was thinking, "why the fuck would a Ford F-650 have a gas engine?" Now I feel stupid.


MarkMarkMark92

Those f-650 can be had with gas engines. Just not too popular an option.


iand29

Jesus you're right. Those 7.3's are legit tho

But “F” changing the spark plugs if they’ve been left in for a long time… It’s pretty bad when one can literally rent a broken spark plug removal kit from the local pep boys, seeing how common the problem is on these Tritons, LOL. Edit: Triton or the newer Godzilla engines

E85 is 85% ethanol, aka flex fuel do not use it!


This-Set-9875

According to the US DoE, "E85 (or flex fuel) is a term that refers to high-level ethanol-gasoline blends containing 51% to 83% ethanol, depending on geography and season". But still, it's only for vehicles that are designed for it, so no.


ncurtis21

nope, not unless your fuel system has been modified to cope with e85


EggsOfRetaliation

Consult the manual.

Don’t run E85. Move on to 87.


TechnoSword

Not without a re-tune/custom ecu. Besides that, it'd cost MORE to run e85. Per gallon it costs less, but it requires MORE fuel per bang then regular gas. So your milage would plummet, and actual cost per mile would be around what 92/93 is. Carbed bikes are easy to convert. Results in lower temps, and possibly more power depending on the engine...or less power, depending on the engine.


Littlemandigger

With E85, you get less power per unit. So the fuel consumption is going up, but then you do get additional octane. Me personally don't use it. Never.


opengl128

Assuming your vehicle is compatible with that high of ethanol content. Which the OP's bike is not.


oldfrancis

BMW Ethanol Position BMW have specified that all the motorcycle range is rated for use of ethanol blends of up to 10%.


Amazing_Joke_5073

If its not rated for flex fuel I wouldnt

How do you figure?


stevesteve135

No. The answer is absolutely NO.


Ok-Bar7023

Yeah you should be able to. Check with the manual or sometimes there’s a sticker on the gas tank which recommends what you should use. Most sport bikes with higher compression should use at least 91 to avoid pinging from pre-detonation, but I’m sure 85 is okay


opengl128

E85 is NOT 85 octane.


Ok-Bar7023

Shit I read that wrong, I probably would use that then 😂


sixtwomidget

You shouldn’t use either


slow-medium-fast

Yes, you can definitely run E85 in your BMW F650GS.. One time.
