The files are continually updated with new stations so you can always get the updated version anytime...no need to wait!
You can select ALL E85 stations in the country or just the states you need. For your GPS device to run as fast as possible, best option is to select only the states you need.
I just wish the fuel was cheaper because it burns so much faster!
What are E85 Stations and what do they have to do with GPS Devices??? Thanks.
I clicked on the link 5:31pm CST and when I did it said not found.

I went to Wikipedia to check out E85. I did not know that ethanol was in such high demand. Anyway, I guess what is being discussed is the POI files for these stations and that is the relevance between E85 and GPS.
I believe it's gas stations that have Ethanol in the gas. Personally I don't WANT any freaking Ethanol in my gas.
You have it in your gas already up to 10% unless you use pure gas which there are still some stations left,and a POI on this website that tells their locations.
You should not attempt to run a conventional gas engine on E85. Only vehicles designed for it can run on it. Actually your vehicle will run, but not for long. Most Nissan, Ford, Chevy, GMC and several others have what is called Flex Fuel engines designed to run on 85% ethanol.
Ethanol contains less BTU per volume then gas, however it can be much cheaper then gas in certain parts of the country, primarily the Mid West. The problem is that you will not get the same range as gas. It is a bit of a trade off, it just depends on the cost of the fuel.
Here are a couple of links for your info.
This downloaded csv file has many errors in it.
That is if you use Garmin's PoiLoader. That program will tell you that you have an error on line xyz when the error could have occurred many lines before. The errors are not usually obvious either.
E-85 is not a consistent 85% alcohol/15% gasoline, as the mix ratio changes seasonally due to temperature changes.
True the same with regular fuel, it is up to 10%, however the "seasonal changes" are always less than 1% so subtract 1 from the stated ethanol percentage and it will be between that and the stated percentage. 9-10% for regular fuel and 84-85% for E85. Let's just hope the EPA does not get their way, they want to bump that 10% up to 15%. There are hundreds of thousands of vehicles still on the road that will have serious issues with that level.
The only time I like E85 is filling up a rental car right before returning it to save a few bucks. Make 100% sure the rental is a flex fuel vehicle before you do the same.
The frequency of fillup and mpg adjustment isn't worth the trouble of more ethanol. E85 can cost more per mile and result in more gas station trips.
I would prefer to have no ethanol in my gas for normal purposes.
