I want to run my 302 off ethanol

anybody know what the price is of ethanol per gallon?
I will run a holley carb and re jet it, and probably run a fuel heater.
What compresstion ratio can I run with a 194 duturation cam on pure ethanol and iron heads? With that compression what do I have to limit my valve lift to?

any body know where I can buy Ethanol in the san diego area?
thanks

Straight ethanol is not very redily available, but E85 is. It is 85% ethanol, 15% gasoline. This mix is 105 octane, so you can bump up the compression a bit, but fuel availability is the problem. California isn't exactly ethanol friendly, so I can't say if you will find it, but www.e85fuel.org has most of the locations listed on their maps.

Oops, that address is wrong, you need www.e85fuel.com, not org. It appears there is ONE station in California, San Diego. Location
