What happens to a car that isn’t meant to be run on E85 if it accidentally does?

    A small amount of E85 should not harm the your vehicle. E85 will not prohibit a motor to run, but it will cause it to run lean. This will be picked up by the oxygen sensors and your computer will cause the engine to get poor fuel mileage as it tries to restore the oxygen levels to normal.

    The downside of E85 in a car not designed to burn it is that the E85 will deteriorate rubber, aluminum, and magnesium parts in your vehicle.

    If you had to use E85 in you vehicle it will not be harmed for a short while, but remember that certain parts will deteriorate much faster and will fail sooner than normal.
