I have added the sensor. So it needs to be activated and tuned for it.

Do you do any tunes for E15? It is a 88 octane and the price is only $1.92 right now. I have your custom 87/89 Tune and your 91/93 Tune. I wasnt sure if there were any gains to get from the E15 or if it's treated like normal octane.

Your 87/89 Tune runs quite well on it. I switch from E85 to E15 during the winter. E85 is pretty hard to start when it's really cold.

Thanks for the quick reply! Sounds good. It does run good on the E15 and I still get decent MPG.

I was told you can't use an E85 flex fuel kit on a 2018 Camaro SS LT1, is this true?

You can, along with the needed bigger fuel pump and injectors, and then take it to a shop to get tuned with HPTuners, and they can send your TCM to HPTuners too to get it unlocked/modified, and then they'd be able to tune your A8 tranny too with hptuners.

Yes, custom tune can be done to enable the flex fuel sensor with cmr.

i have a 2018 silverado with the diablo tune and was recently looking up about doing the flex fuel sensor conversion and i read in a forum that once u plug in the pigtail connector to the sensor the ecu will recognize it and make the adjustments ? how true is that?

Not true at all.

Sensor has to be enabled inthe tune so the pcm knows to look for it, and then there may be several tables that need to be populated with realistic data to make it all work properly.
