Do you mean the E85 stuff? The stuff that is almost straight ethanol? Sure, you can do that. Well, if you don't mind detonation and severe knock issues. The only cars that can run on that stuff are the flex fuel vehicles. If you want your bonneville to last, stay away from it.

Personally,if it is a blend I stay away from it.
Good ole non-blended 93 octane is the best way to make and keep Bonnie happy!!!!!!!
(along with a good oil,filter and regular maintenance)

Coming from the son of a grain farmer, get the fuel that is 10% ethanol. I get it anytime I can.

All gas in MN is 10-15% i believe.

Our economy needs more too btw.
