What is the maximum % of ethanol that is safe to use in these?

Am I correct that the trucks I see that are E85 stickered are set up differently?

Didn't the current administration just mandate an increase in the ethanol percentage to 15% to cover the loss in the corn market from the tariffs? I thought I heard that on the radio.

No. They will allow the refineries to use ethenol mixtures all year long and stop mandating % limitations. Remember Pure Gas is also a great option.
It is always better when the consumer has choices.

They can. Doesn't mean your car will like E15. Though, it's become more common.

It has to be labeled anyway. Just watch what gas you put in your car. Don't go over E10 unless you have an XT and tune for it.

They can but doesn't mean they will as I said the consumer will vote with their wallet. Just like there is regular, medium, high test, pure gas ( ethenol free ). You shouldn't add any extra stress because of a possibility something could happen really doesn't mean it will hapoen

I can buy 100% gas at the hardware store in a gallon can. At the station I get what they provide.
In Winter it is 10% ethanol.

Thanks for the replies that my vehicles are not set up for more than 10% ethanol.

Feel free to close this thread admins.

If you use 100% gasoline, look for your mpg's to go up.

Just curious. In locations where 100% regular grade (87 octane) gas is offered, how is it priced as compared to E10 regular?
