    I wait till I'm at a 1/4 tank or less, then I put in 3 gallons of E85 then round up to the next whole dollar. Then I top off the rest with 93. My ltft stays at +/- 5%.

    If I really, really ran it down to e, then I will put in at least four gallons of E85. Y'all make it way too hard.

    That's basically what I do except I'm on CA 91. I've gone over 4 gallons of e85 plus mild octane booster with no issues.

I don't really use calculators, after mixing fuel and the pumps numerous times I have a good idea of how many gallons I need to mix between pumps (91oct and e85) and use the gauge to confirm I'm safe.
    I never meant for this to be a "Gauges are useless" thread. This was something i was trying to find, and when i couldn't, I decided to put it out for other people. I completely agree that in the ideal setup one would have a gauge--it is definitely good to have something confirming your mix. It also comes down to preference: do you want to check the ethanol before you put it in your car with a little messy tube you have to fill up, or a nice clean and simple gauge like you have? Either work perfectly fine if you use them right.

    I also didn't mean for this to be an argument, rather a solution. To me it looked like people were worried about running E30 because they didn't have a gauge. "Unnecessary" does not mean useless, but i do stand by the fact that as long as you are checking the E85% beforehand with a tester and you do the math right, no matter what boost you run, you will have the correct percentages in your tank.

    here's an excellent way to verify if the E mix in the tank is good for the tune one is running with just an Accessport or capable OB2 reader.

    and here's the pioneer of the diy gauge kit.
