Well the answer is yes... and no. My 06 SE-R runs fine on mixes as high as E40 (I've experimented as high as E70) and we all know all cars can run on E-10 so blending a few gallons of E85 with regular gasoline will afford you some relief at the pump. depending on which engine your Sentra has, and where in the country you live it's becoming more and more popular to upsize the fuel injectors ~30% this will allow your vehicle to run on straight E85 and the computer will not be the wiser. NOW if you live in an area where E85 is not plentiful this is not a solution because the car will run very rich on straight gasoline. you should be okay as Nissan tends not to use a lot of natural rubber in their fuel systems, however keep in mind like all experiments it's vital to monitor the operation of your engine, keep observing and be ready to add gasoline if it starts acting up. but I think with no conversion you'll see 3 or so gallons per tank to be an achievable number. be prepared for a 15% drop in mileage per gallon of ethanol added. it will however work out int he end.

E85 in a regular engine?

Not recommended. E85 (flex fuel) engines are modified engines that allows the use of flex fuel. E85 is less potent then standard gas so more fuel (up to 34%) is needed to be injected into the cylinders to retain the car's power. Flex fuel cars have electronic fuel injectors, that can sense the E85 gasoline and increase the amount injected into the chamber. If you put E85 fuel into a standard engine, u will experience a significant reduction in power, and possibly doing harm to your engine. E85 fuel is good in a since that it burns cleaner and emits less emissions but because more fuel is needed to be injected, it produces lower fuel economy numbers.
