No, you need a flex fuel engine to do this. It's not really practical to modify an existing gas engine -- you need hardened valve seats, different injectors and fuel rail, fuel lines, tank, etc., because E85 is so corrosive. I would find a flex fuel car you like and buy it.

no added performance either if anything worse and youll actually get worse milage then you do with gas
