Ethanol free fuel

Is it safe for me to use ethanol free fuel in my car 2004 envoy

Yes. It’s best, in fact, if you can manage to find it.

Yes. And your car will probably get better MPG.

Yes, as long as you use the correct octane.

You may notice slightly better gas mileage with pure gasoline as opposed to gas with 10% ethanol.

I always choose ethanol-free gasoline when it’s available.

actually the ethanol is not free, you pay for it along with the real gas.

:wink:

But the taxpayers help with a 52-cent/gallon blend tax credit to ethanol.

Yet another way the average motoring citizen is subsidizing the corn industry.
