AAA Says Not To Use E-15 Ethanol – Could Hurt Car

According to, the EPA, influenced by special interest groups, approved E-15 ethanol gasoline even though 95% of the cars on the road (228 million) could be damaged by using it. Three states so far are selling E-15 ethanol gasoline — Nebraska, Kansas, Iowa; but the EPA is pushing its use across the rest of the country. Car manufacturers have adapted cars to be able to use E-10 but not E-15.  Can your car tolerate the high ethanol levels?  Older cars are particularly susceptible to being damaged by E-15.  Also, BMW, Toyota, Nissan, Chrysler, Volkswagen, etc. have said their car warranties will not cover fuel-related claims. AAA is advising not to purchase E-15 ethanol gasoline.
