Run with it.

Ninety percent of the nation's gasoline brands are already blended with ethanol, a high-octane, clean-burning, renewable fuel enhancer. In fact, it's probably in your car right now.

Ethanol

What is an ethanol blend?

An ethanol blend is a mix of ethanol with regular unleaded gasoline. The most well-known blend is E-85, meaning 85% ethanol and 15% gasoline. Newer mid-range blends, E-20 and E-30, provide consumers with more options.

Is it safe for all vehicles?

All cars built after 1980 are made to run on blends up to E-10. The EPA has authorized the use of E-15 in light-duty vehicles made after 2001. Flex fuel vehicles are made to run with even higher levels of ethanol, including E-20, E-30 and E-85.

Improved Fuel Economy

Studies show that mid-range ethanol blends like E-20 and E-30 can provide better fuel economy than regular gasoline.

Improved Performance

Ethanol's high octane rating (113) increases horsepower. In fact, ethanol is the trusted fuel of choice for the nation's highest performance drivers and is endorsed by both NASCAR and the IndyCar series.

Good for Your Car

There is no risk or extra maintenance associated with running ethanol in flex fuel vehicles. Ethanol helps prevent buildup in your fuel injection system, keeping your engine cleaner and increasing its life span.
