10-15% Ethanol use?
ok we have been having a problem with my grandpas 94 f150. its hard to start and had a misfire in it at first. we chagned spark plugs and wires and it got even worse. we called autozone and they said its probably bad gas in it. they said its going to just get worse starting september 15th of this year. the goverment is requiring all gas stations to use 10-15% ethanol. is there anything you can recommend to do for our cars? i really cant afford going to autozone and getting fuel stabilizer every time i get gas. the manual says not to use anymore than 10% ethanol or it will damage it. cars say on the doors also now to not use more than 10% ethanol or that will void warranty(could be wrong about the %). is that just a way for the government to help manufacturers to rip people off on their warranty? i needed gas really bad once and was worried about making to gas station and closest was ethanol at the time so i got some just to stop myself from running out. it turned my check engine light on and didnt go off for over 3 tanks of non ethanol gas. thanks
