Exactly the opposite. E85 has a different stoich value so you can't use a AF gauge for normal gas if you don't brainthrust the numbers for E85 first. Using lambda is a good way of thinking AFR as the values mean the same for every fuel type. I bet you are already searching for good read about this so you will definately get it figured out.

Wiki for the rescue for stoich numbers

stoichiometric AFR:
GAS 14.7
E85 9.765

stoichiometric Lambda
GAS 1
E85 1
