Ethanol E85 and the FJ

There aren't too many stations that have ethanol in California but since I happen to live in San Diego it's an interesting option as there's one here. Has anyone given this a try with the FJ? I'm sure that it could be done (www.flextek.com), however there may not be any substantial benefits other than the fact it's not petroleum based. I'm interested in hearing any general experience with E85 and ideally FJ specific experience...
