    Yea I am sort of thinking for what the cars built for just tuning and running it on 98 is enough.  I mean its not like i am chasing torque or power right now, and i really just ant to enjoy it as much as I can so 98 will do for now.  If I ever go a nice rear mount remote turbo set up on it might be a different story…

    I was lucky with my tune.

    95/98 tuned.

    I got E85 tune at no extra cost.

    Using 50 litres of 80% ethanol I clocked 461km from Coffs Harbour out to Yamba, up through Byron, in through Mullum out to Kingscliff and up to Worongary (GC hinterland).

    Average consumption was 10.8l/100k which at $1.11 works out to 12¢ a kilometre measured at the pump actual fuel used and trip meter

    That’s with two adults and luggage plus 300 kg load a a decent clip in a cammed 500+hp wagon.

    Without flex fuel and instead using PULP98, the exact same work would cost 2.5x to 3x more in fuel.

    Brake Standard Fuel Consumption evens out as you get near 13.5 CR, produces 3o% more torque for same fuel mass.

    Also devices like cylinder deactivation, and VVT allows for longer effective expansion cycle, smaller displacement, and better thermodynamics for cool lean burn.

    The main point was cost per km when you also weigh the price of flex is $1.11 vs PULP 98 $1.68.
