Looking for E85/E100 stations in CT,

I'm aware of stations over the border in Rye, NY and one at the pump Waterford, CT although i'm hoping for one to be close by that is not well known, yet...or is hiding. E100 would be prime.

Lower New Haven/Fairfield county.

Anybody know of anything?

Complete opposite actually, the only thing that the average person needs to worry about is corrosion in their older american vehicles with out-dated hardware (fuel lines, the gas tank itself)

Bleh, looks like i'm going to rye for this. (its for my forced induction application).

Just for anyone thats wondering. E85 is great for higher horsepower force induced vehicles with a beefed up fuel system.

Timing advance is usually limited by the fuel, which does detonate inconsistently. Some people call it knock. which is extremely hard on the rods of a motor and pretty much everything else.

Maybe for a purpose built engine, but ethanol has a tendency to cause buildup on engine parts. Especially in vehicles with direct injection.
