That car was using C16 race fuel, larger turbos, larger 4.0 engine, larger cams, and upgraded valve springs and retainers.

I'm using E85 fuel that I got from a gas station that was on my way to the event. I drove the car 340 miles round trip and was stuck in Atlanta traffic for over an hour. GT-Rs have been using E85 for almost 4 years now without any issues to the fuel system. Most modern fuel systems have no problems with ethanol. Just about all stations now have up to 10% ethanol in their unleaded gas.
