Experiments in running E85 ethanol, mixed with regular 87 octane gasoline, in non-flex fuel vehicles (2004 Acura TL and 2007 Saab 9-3.)
Buzz- the same Federal Handbook with the phase separation test and the seasonal blends also has in the very back a proceedure for testing conductivity tests. Sorry- i did not go back and look at it or compare the meter specs to the expected test range. Thanks for the link to the meter- I will have to give it a look in the future.By the way- when I do phase separation tests I dump it into my FFV tank (in E85)to get rid of it. It should also be ok to do limited samples into E30 also.Alcohol
Yeah, I saw the method of using the conductivity meter in that handbook, so I Googled it to find a meter for sale. 80 or so bucks is not bad.Unfortunately, the handbook doesn't tell you how to translate the meter output into % ethanol!I also saw that somebody hacked the old GM fuel sensor. He connected it to his fuel return line, and had a Serbian (?!?) technology firm build him a reader with a small LCD that he mounted in his cockpit (it was an Evo).I'm on the lookout for the fuel sensor on Ebay...
