To properly answer, I'd have to say neither a gas carb or a full alky carb would work. It has to be built for that fuel, and calibrated for its weird air/fuel ratio.
E85 behaves about half way to methanol as far as what the carb sees.
It works ok, but I much prefer methanol if it's allowed but if not, then racing fuel is the choice most make.
We've built a few E85 carbs....
