Where to get E85??

I live on the NSW Central Coast and i am unsure as to whom sells E85 at the pump.
Is it called this at the bauser???

Any help would be great.

Not really interested in buying a 200L drum of it to keep at home.

Cheers

I also just checked the Caltex website as advised above, and its states that the RON level varies between seasons.

i know they change the blends for summer/winter with diesel coz diesel goes all gluggy and the car wont run when it gets cold/freezes

i dont think they do it for unleaded but they may have to do it to the E85 coz a similar thing must happen like diesel

They change the blend from 85% in summer to a lower blend in winter around the 60-70% ethanol mark.

Why they do it is because your car is a lot harder to start on ethanol during colder weather and hence lower the blend so you don't kill your battery trying to start it up during winter.
