Does anyone know a place to buy E85/E98 etc? I found one and race gas sells for $120/20L and they have E85/E98 and a special performance blend for $85/20L.
Figured I might go this route now since I found it.
Anyone know a cheaper place?

Noooooo, but please share where this location is at.

I believe the place in Streetsville sells a blend of E98.

Is that out of a pump? Sounds like a drum, if so any shop that sells race gas can get it. Might want to look at getting 55 gallon drums from the states instead. That's what I'll be doing.

VP Fuels Ontario offers C85 which is the same as e85 except it's a consistent blend of ethanol

The C-85 $650/204 L drum

works out to $3.19/L

NEW! C85™
If you’re committed to using E85 type fuels, C85 is by far your best choice. Conventional E85 fuels are notoriously inconsistent, requiring up to a two-jet swing in tuning from one batch of E85 to the next. By contrast, C85 is blended with a consistent proportion of ethanol and every other component in every drum. In addition to taking all the guesswork out of tuning, C85 makes up to 4% more power and torque than conventional E85. With higher quality pure components, C85 is superior to E85 in terms of cooling effect, resistance to detonation and even includes corrosion inhibitors to fight the issues presented by ethanol. C85 works well in drag racing, oval track, off road and virtually any other automotive application, in particular forced induction applications due to its lower vapor pressure. Tests of C85 indicate most applications will require richening up by 1 jet size, or 2-3% over current jetting. Note that for racers unwilling to invest in the new carb and expensive fuel system upgrade required for E85, VP’s MS109, VP113 and Q16 continue to be the best race gas alternatives for the money.

You can take E98 and mix with pump and make it cheaper. It will still be consistent since our fuel here is consistent.
However they have the special formulated blend for higher hp (not regular E85).

That station in Guelph will not let you buy any e85 unless you show an ownership showing your car is e85 compatible nor can you fill up any fuel cans either. I called them already (months ago)

so that means a converted car will not be allowed to fill up?
Im not sure, I never asked that question. Either way no way in hell I would drive that far just for a tank of fuel anyways. Would not be worth it at all unless you live in Guelph.

Adam, I called Lordco a while back and they buy from VP in Calgary. E100 would be subject to a massive tax because it's 100% ethanol (like the alcohol we drink.) To be free from that tax, it needs to be diluted and not possibly for sale for consumption (like e85, e98, etc.)

NAh, you have to be a mixologist to do that shit. I tried the tolulene way back which is the same shit as xylene and you also have to add a certain amount of lubricant to the shit (marvel mystery oil) in the correct ratios. No need for that since we have so many fuel options (VP, OCF, etc)
