Default E30??

The gas stations around here have started selling e30. Is it safe to run E30 in a 96 2.3L. i most likely never will because i know how bad ethanol is for the gaskets and stuff. but just wondering because it is below $ 3.00 at some places.

Unless something evaded me...I'd say no. I don't know if it is rated for a vehicle that old. If you had a truck that was say...08 I wouldn't worry so much. I'd stay away from it.

What industry or equipment would ever run E30? I used to run 84 or 85 Octane in my old 89 Escort when Sunoco used to have the 4 grades of gas, but they have long discountinued the lower octane.

E30 isn't for anything specific. It's a gimmick to reduce foreign oil consumption. I know it will work in a lot of newer cars. But it's more of a tax write off for the company selling it than anything.

E30 has nothing to do with the octane rating (directly anyway). It's 30% ethanol and 70% gasoline.
