Consistency With Quick Fuel's E85 Checker

Consistency With Quick Fuel's E85 Checker

BOWLING GREEN, KY – E85 offers many benefits to performance enthusiasts and racers with its 105-octane rating, cooler engine temperatures and cleaner emissions. The variations from pump-to-pump for street driving are negligible, but to the racer, even a small percentage change of ethanol can determine the outcome of a race if nothing is done to compensate. Consistency is especially important for bracket racers where a win can be determined by thousandths of a second.

E85 fuel is said to contain 85-percent ethanol and 15-percent gasoline, but the fuel mixture can vary anywhere from a low of 70-percent all the way up to 85-percent ethanol depending on place of refinement and season of purchase. Quick Fuel Technology's E-Checker will let you know exactly what you are pouring into your tank.

The QFT E-Checker can help the racer calibrate their air/fuel mixture. Using the E-Checker takes only a few moments and is simple to use. First you add water to the first line on the E-Checker and then pour in the E85 sample to the second line. The ethanol absorbs the water and the gasoline floats on top revealing a definitive boundary. This boundary will lie in the area of the E-Checker that is graduated giving you the percentage of ethanol in the E85 fuel. The glass E-Checker comes with it's own durable carrying case to keep it safe in any toolbox.
