Question: Can E85 Damage My Car??

Ethanol can cause several types of damage to the engine in your vehicle.

Your vehicle’s fuel intake components can be damaged.

In addition, ethanol can cause damage to the fuel pump in your vehicle.

These repairs and replacements can range from a few hundred dollars to more than $1,000 to take care of properly.

What happens if you put e85 in car by mistake?

E85 is a fuel that has a much higher blend of ethanol. Some cars, labelled as flex-fuel vehicles or FFV can switch between E85 and normal pump gas without any issues, but if you accidentally fill your non-FFV car with E85, you may notice some issues.

Can you mix e85 and regular unleaded?

Flex fuel system means you can run the E85 corn gas and or the regular unleaded gas. 91 or 87 octane is fine. The regular unleaded 87 octane gas is even better than the E85 corn gas. The E85 is just an alternative fuel.

What happens if you put e15 in a regular car?

Not so, if you accidentally put E15, a blend of 15% ethanol and 85% gasoline, in the majority of the cars on the road today. Many groups, including AAA, are concerned that consumers don’t realize that using E15 could cause damage to their cars and potentially void the warranty.
