Ethanol and non-hybrid engines


#1

It’s getting hard to find gas that doesn’t have ethanol in it. I just recently bought a 2006 Kia Spectra EX. What is the ethanol going to do to my engine? What will happen to even older cars that are still on the road running on ethanol mix gases?

There isn’t enough ethanol (8 to 10%) in regular unleaded gas to do harm to your engine. If there was damage being done we’d all be parked on the side of the road.
