Question for you all. Maybe should start a separate thread, but figured I'd start here.
I was a little distracted with let's just say a stunning view while filling up today and forgot to stop at 2.5 gallons of e85. Accidentally put in 5 gallons. According to my calculations, that's about 52% ethanol content.
I am 1.8, stock pumps with APR IS38 tune. Anything I should worry about, or just don't give it full throttle?
How can I measure using Torque if fueling is insufficient or running lean?
That’s even news to me... I was getting direct responses from Cobb that up till maybe 2-3 months ago they were not even investigating flex fueling for the mqb platform. Wasn’t till even after they released mpi activation for the 2019s that I saw someone from eqt posting that they have been working with Cobb for the flex fueling.I've heard "a few months out" for the better part of 2 years.
Where are you from? Besides the dozen or so dynotuners that can enable MPI an some even flex in Europe Ecutek, Maestro and soon Cobb can do MPI E-tunes.Back to the thread, wondering what has happened in this field since one year ago.
For myself and others, what are the current options to go E85 (and E85 flex) with remote tune / e-tune? Specifically for those based in europe (Factory MPI or GPF cars) but a runthrough including USDM wouldn't hurt either, right?
Thanks a million.
I read through most of the posts in this forum and have a good unterstanding on benfits, limits etc. One question for my specifc setup:
Alltrack with IS20 and stock fueling (Should be Golf R LFPP and 1.8 Injectors + HFPP? )
UM tuned with 91 and 22PSI max boost...had a 89-93 fuel mix at the time and played it safe (Switch soon to 93octane and 23-24PSI)
93 Octane fuel available everywhere
A mild E20 - 25 blend shouldn't cause any issues fueling capacity wise? I'm not looking for crazy gains nor an investment for flex fuel kit. Have a E85 station close by and thought it won't hurt + prevents kock / lowers temperatures in hot conditions. I'm just worried about reaching the limits of the stock fuel system.
I actually asked him early last year, here's his response:Looks like he is not here anymore but IIRC he was UM tuned and they connect a flex fuel sensor to the ECU, that can be read on OBD2 or canbus devices.
