V3 AccessPort Flex-Fuel support Subaru wrx/sti
The Cobb Accessport has proven to be a powerful, flexible, and easy to use ECU tuning option the Subaru community. After years of development Cobb has announced Flex Fuel support for Subaru WRX and STI. This means you can now safely run any blend of ethanol/gasoline and your ECU will know exactly how to handle the blended fuel. In the past we would normally use 2 different maps; 1 map for gasoline and 1 map for E85. While this works well it does not allow for any "blending" of the gasonline/Ethanol. Using the Flex Fuel kit with Ethanol content and fuel pressure sensors you can now simply use 1 Flex fuel calibration for any gasonline/ethanol blend resulting in more HP and Torque along with un matched reliability. Now that you can safely top off your fuel tank with whatever fuel is available you will never need to stress about which gas station you need to stop at again.

Brewed Motors supports Cobb Flex Fuel through our normal Tuning service as well as our E-Tune services popular for those customers in remote locations who don't have access to a professional tuner. Fine tuning all of the maps related to "Flex Fuel" is the only way to ensure your engine is running at peak efficiency on all blends of Ethanol/Gasoline.

Why Do you need Flex Fuel or Ethanol?
Compared to standard pump fuel, the higher ethanol content in ethanol blends such as E85 provide a substantially higher effective octane rating. The octane rating of a fuel indicates it’s ability to resist detonation. This added resistance allows tuning to be more aggressive through timing and boost, yielding greater horsepower/torque output. These factors combined make for a ethanol/gasoline fuel blend with more power potential over the standard pump gasoline. With an active Flex Fuel system, a vehicle’s ECU is able to seamlessly blend calibrations required for any blend of Ethanol/gasoline. Using an ethanol content sensor and fuel pressure sensor the ecu can see the exact ethanol/gasonline blend (displayed as % via AP) as well as fuel pressure. Both these bits of data are extremely helpful to the tuner as well as the ECU's ability to run in "closed loop" system, based on the 2 new fuel system sensors readings.
