Yesterday, I posted about a writeup examiner.com did on the 2011 Chevrolet Caprice PPV police car tests. The test were being conducted by the Michigan State Police.
The writeup made reference to the fact that the Chevrolet Caprice PPV performed better with E85 than it did with gasoline.
As an interesting side note, the Caprice PPV was tested with both gasoline and E85 form, and through every acceleration and road course test, the alcohol powered Caprice was quicker and/or faster.
After doing some more searching I found the test results on the Michigan State Police Vehicle Evaluation Web site. Three different Chevrolet models were tested, the Chevrolet Impala 9C1 3.9L, Caprice 9C1 6.0L, and the Tahoe PPV 5.3L. With all three Chevrolet vehicles, tests were conducted with gasoline and with E85.
In all three vehicles, acceleration times and road course lap times improved on E85.
