Aug. 3, 2007 - PRLog -- MYTH: If I put E85 in my gas tank, it will eat it away.
FACT: If your car was built in the old days, it was had a lead coated, steel tank. The water in ethanol would cause the tank to rust from the inside out. So at one time, this was fact. The government mandated that all gasoline in the USA contain 10% ethanol to help reduce pollution (ethanol has a high oxygen content). This started during the Carter Administration. With advancements in technology and the need for lighter and stronger cars, automakers began using polymers, Teflon and plastics in the construction of cars and in the fuel systems. They had to make these changes to withstand ethanol in the gasoline. Remember gasohol? Ask any mechanic when was the last time they changed a fuel tank due to corrosion or leaks. They will probably answer in the 70s or 80s. So any vehicle from the 1980s and newer will be able to handle ethanol. These advancements have made vehicles considerably more durable all around. Plus ethanol processes have advanced so today’s ethanol has very low water content.
