At 15,000 miles per year, the approximate 372 gram/mile per vehicle CO 2 emission reduction achievable by switching from gasoline to E85 translates to an annual per-vehicle reduction of 6.1 tons of CO 2 .
Cellulosic ethanol has the potential for 86% less emissions.

What is the E85 Cutversion Kit from Cutversion Technologies Corp.?
The E85 Cutversion Kit is an E85 conversion kit that will allow your gasoline fuel injected vehicle to be able to use either ethanol based or petroleum based fuels.
What is E85?
E85 stands for 85% ethanol and 15% gasoline. Ethanol is an alternative fuel that can be made from a number of renewable sources: corn, sugarcane, switch grass, and other types of biomass. Ethanol has been around for a very long time - Henry Ford actually designed the original Model T to run on ethanol back in 1908.
How does the E85 Cutversion Kit work?
The idea is simple: we modify the signal that is sent from the vehicle’s ECM to the fuel injectors to produce the proper fuel mixture in the combustion chamber. The System’s advanced circuitry is OBD-II certified which ensures that no check engine lights or conflicts occur with your vehicle’s computer.
Will I need to make any other modifications to my engine in addition to the E85 Cutversion Kit?
You will not need any other modifications after installing the System, but you may see additional horsepower increases by going with a higher flowing fuel pump and fuel injectors.
Will using E85 harm any of my fuel system’s components?
No. All modern gasoline fuel injected engines are already ethanol compliant; you are probably burning 5% ethanol (E5) in your vehicle right now. There are a number of myths surrounding ethanol stemming mainly from its revival due to the oil crisis in the 1970s (gasohol). Since then auto manufacturers have designed their vehicles to be able to tolerate ethanol.
Can I still use gasoline after I have installed the E85 Cutversion Kit?
Yes. Once the E85 Cutversion Kit is installed, you will be able to use E85, gas, or any combination of both fuels. The advanced circuitry in the system will automatically adjust for whatever the fuel mixture is.
Why would I want to use E85 in my car or light truck?
There are many advantages to using E85 in your vehicle, especially if you are interested in high performance:
Increased Horsepower – E85 has an octane rating of 105.
E85 has a cooling effect in an engine’s combustion chamber which means:
Higher boost in superchargers
Higher boost in turbos
E85 will save you money at the pump over premium unleaded gas, and if you are running on race gas it will save you even more.
E85 availability is constantly increasing and can be found in more locations than race gas.
E85 burns much cleaner so you will not only be helping your engine and your pocketbook, you will also be helping the environment.
E85 lessens dependency on imported foreign oil - stop sending your hard earned money to OPEC.
