I was wondering if I could use E85 fuel in my car, its a 1994 Dodge Spirit
with a 3.0 v6. Its 25 cents cheeper than unleaded fuel here, and the
station in my town is the first in Indiana to sell the alternate fuel
If your vehicle is a flex fuel vehicle then yes, use it. But if im not
mistaken I think Chrysler only had the 4 cyl designed to burn flex fuel in
that year. Keep in mind that when you use this fuel it requires a different
type of oil. E85 fuel is highly corrosive.
If your vehicle is not designed to use it, it can cause drivability
problems, hard starts and even the check engine lite to turn on.
unfortunetly, indiana is slow about using the flex fuels, we just now got
e85 and this station in my town is the first and only one in indiana to have
Now I know I can use E10 if I could find it, but havent yet.
