Jay Leno is among the world's most famous car enthusiasts, and he seems to appear in a major auto publication every single month. Of course, there is a good reason for all the pub: he has some kick-ass cars. One of his newest white diamonds is the C6RS E85 Corvette, which started life as a stock Z06 and ended up with an 8.2L E85-capable engine and plenty of racing parts. We interviewed Steve Hofmann of Jay's Big Dog Garage, and he had plenty of details concerning the C6RS green machine. Click play on the video above to check it out.

      E85. It's not as good as you think folks. Wait and see, E85 is NOT the way to go. All the arguments have been heard before, but nobody listens.

        From a power standpoint, its much better than gas, from a economy standpoint its much worse

          While it is true that you can make a ton of horsepower on almost any fuel, the modifications, and the fuel use ratio must be considered, and it is usually ignored. Ethanol has only 88% the BTU output of gasoline. That is science. To do any amount of "work" energy must be converted into "work". To run 100MPH requires "x" amount of fuel. If all factors are identical in a mechanical device, the fuels used to achieve "work" will have power output directly proportional to their energy output. To do the same amount of "work" with a fuel with less energy output will require more of that fuel. Fact. Translation-Increased fuel consumption using a fuel with less energy output. Yes, there are ways to affect this use, but basic physics do not change, no matter how much Nebraskans like to sell corn.

      That speaker doesn't know crap about autos.
