Yup it's actually E-85 but close enough The 2.7L is the only flex-fuel avenger meaning it can use unleaded or ethanol gas.Just picked up my 08 SXT 2.7L over the weekend....I love this car for the price and just had a question about a badge on my trunk that reads Ethanol87... I didnt see it at the dealer and am just wondering if this means I can use Ethinal in this vehicle??
E85 is a mix of the two. Up to 85% Ethanol and 15% Gasoline.You should not intermix the two types of fuel.
You are correct. I must have that part of the owner's manual. Below is the part I remembered and was regarding possible driveability issues.E85 is a mix of the two. Up to 85% Ethanol and 15% Gasoline.
FlexFuel or E85 vehicles are designed to run on any mixture of gasoline and ethanol with up to 85% ethanol by volume.
So mixing half a tank of straight gas with half a tank of E85 is just an Ethanol mix with a lower percentage of Ethanol. And that's perfectly fine.
