I filled up at Meijer yesterday. The E85 pump speed issue has been fixed. I put in 6.008 gallons of E85 at $1.90 a gallon, and 8.344 gallons of regular at $1.90 a gallon. With the 2.048 gallons of 10.18% ethanol gas left in the tank, that makes an ethanol content of 35.29%.

It's interesting, almost as soon as I pulled away from Meijer, my throttle response was soft. I don't know what it is, but high-mid grades of ethanol just kill my throttle response. It could be increased turbo lag, or have something to do with the electric throttle. Maybe the ECU is confused by the fuel trims that it is seeing.
