Don't think so. Your looking at a minimum of a 120k to set it up 2 pumps in a modern gas station. Not every gas station sells diesel and there are a lot more diesel vehicles than E85 vehicles.

I have several times, great guys and my car is running amazing on the stuff. Plus you can grab a bite at the cafe/store next door. They're open 7:30 AM - 9:00 PM every day, so it's pretty easy to avoid bridge traffic. I believe they have regular as well, not sure of the octane.

And funny enough, we are also the *only* diesel station in West Vancouver

Then it is safe to say they have not yet completed their website and for now they only have a FB page...

Those are the dynojet corrected numbers (13%) Very impressive number nontheless.

I have been running 10% ethanol to a tank and the car is awesome. No knock and I can throw 4* more timing by redline (8k). I'm making more power and torque with less boost than I was a year ago. Just waiting on a 450lph walbro e85 pump, ethanol content analyzer and an upgraded wg actuator to arrive before I can turn up the boost to 30psi and run 100% E85 in the tank. My injectors are a little smaller than what's ideal but if I bump up the base pressure to 4bar I should be just above 80% injector duty cycle @ 30psi on a 49lbs/min turbo.

You are correct, these are dynojet corrected. My trap speed for my first mission quarter mile run ever in this car was pretty good at 148.3mph. weighed in at 4250lbs with me, golf clubs and my old exhaust in the trunk. Terrible ET of 10.2, but this was due to not launching properly and too much tire pressure... Still, I'm very impressed with this first run!

Came in on fumes yesterday morning hoping to support a Revscene member...it appears the E85 has taken the place of premium fuel at the pump. Ah well. Thankfully made it to Dundarave, but it was close!

Appreciate the support! Sorry we couldn't help with premium though...
Just put an extra helping of E85 in there and you'll be fine! :-)

Dropped by on Sunday. Sorry I didn't fill anything, I didn't want to risk anything to the car and I was close to empty. Another when I'm tuned to be able to handle E85 for sure.

Nice place though!

Yeah, I considered running a couple of litres of regular to get me to Dundarave...but I'd rather not have a meltdown in the rally bug. Definitely wasn't going to toss E85 through the carbs!

Good to see you guys seem to be doing well though.

We are able to ship drums of E85 to pretty much anywhere in Canada at this point. BC and Alberta shipping is very reasonable. info@arcadestation.ca if you are interested.

I believe my company is going to be quoting you on a new pump/dispenser, a coworker of mine was talking about your site the other week.
