E85 available at Sandy Bay United servo

Recommended Posts

They are selling it for $1.35/litre as of 5/4/12.

 

I don't know about its quality, so buyer beware etc etc.

The servo there has literally just reopened after a big upgrade, so any web stuff is probably out of date yeah. I'll double check tomorrow and report back!

you gotta remember that the petrol part fo e85 makes up only 15% of th over all composition, on top of that E85 has a higher ron then the petrol anyway so its irrelevant what the ron of the petrol is. I have done back to back testing with drum (sucrogen) and pump united fuel and there is zero power difference between the two.. just the price
