Most if not all existing gasoline powered engines can operate without modification on gasoline containing up to 10% ethanol (E10). Some flexible fuel vehicles (FFV) are specifically designed to operate on gasoline containing up to 85% ethanol (E85). One consideration though, is that you will spend more to operate a vehicle on any fuel that contains ethanol. While the vehicle will run cleaner, ethanol blended gasoline has a lower energy content, and therefore will result in a 2%-3% reduction in miles-per-gallon; you will be filling up more to go the same number of miles.
