Ethanol on 87 EFI

With all the talk of alternate fuels and ethanol, what would I have to do to make my 87 302 EFI run ethanol?
There aren't any ethanol stations out where I live yet, but the way gas prices are going, I wouldn't be supprised to see one soon.

Probably higher-flow injectors, definately a reprogram of the fuel and timing maps.

Fuel tanks, fuel pumps, hoses all will need to be changed to tolerate Ethonol fuel in quantities greater than about 10 to 15% per gallon of fuel - 85% gasoline, 15% Ethonol.

Ford plastic lines a lot of there tanks, as well as the metal fuel hoses are teflon lined.

Pure Ethonal or close to pure is a great solvant and will react with you existing metal parts.

Not a easy thing to retrofit properly for out in the field.

Go to www.rune85.com Andy will let you know what needs to be done.

He did a custom Diablo chip for my 99 Ranger to run E85.
