I have over 48,000 miles on my vehicle and have used E85 before without any problems, but went back to 87 due to better mileage. Now, I just use E85 to clean out the water in the system now and then. Well, this last tank (last week) of E85 has caused me starting and stuttering problems. Today, I needed AAA to jump start my vehicle as my battery went dead while trying to start it. It was not cold, but once started, there was a "smoke screen" effect as I'm guess I had a bad tank of gas. Has anyone had an issue like this for an extended period of time?

    You may want to check in over at the Your E85 Flex Fuel Experience discussion and see if anyone lurking there has had problems.
