Thats what I am finding, both of those would make it a pita to get on the way from Havasu.

Maybe call Vern Gilbert @ West Coast Drive Service and ask him where he gets his E85. I know his Brummett engines run on E85. I'm amazed there's nowhere in LHC that sells it considering all the local applications that would benefit from it.

if you do find it at the pump make sure to test it.. most pump e-85 i have found is more like e-55 I get mine from Rebel Fuel distributors here in Vegas.

E85? Glamis? Did you get back in the sand car game?

Yeah, I agree. You don't want E85 from a pump if you're building or running performance engines specifically for E85. Get it direct from a fuel supplier in a barrel, its the only way to guarantee its really E85.

They're a VP dealer, VP makes E-85. It wouldn't take but a phone call.
I've tried to get Q-16 from them, also a VP Product, requires a phone call 2 months in advance. Maybe E85 is different....

Call Todd Taylor - he can get you drums if he still is operating that racing fuel business

I run out to el centro when I’m in glamis and need to refill. 30 min trip and pick up in n out while your at it.
The station tests consistently at or just over 85%
Never had a problem running it in a highly boosted 700hp subi, The farm peeps in the area use the shit out of it so it rotates often.

Between Havasu and glamis, no help

30 minutes round trip to brawley from Glamis? Problem with that is we won’t have a truck when we go, motorhome only

Not round trip, more like an hour, are you going solo?
Someone in camp gotta have a truck. Shit if I was there I’d make my son go get it for ya.

Vp sells x85 in 55 gallon drums. If you do get it from pump make sure you buy a test kit. I get mine at the same station every time. Normally tests about e90. Make sure it’s clear if it turns yellow it’s bad even if it tests okay
