Yes, it's been done for years.
cRiPpLe_rOoStEr, you wouldn't happen to know of engine failure rates in Brazil associated with Ethanol would you? I heard someone say that engine failure is common there. I tried searching but all I could find were failures attributed to poorly regulated fuel quality. :/

That can happen, I've seen MPG plummet after every increase in Ethanol due to getting 13MPG around town after getting 30MPG on the interstate. I'm sharing a vehicle so I don't do all the driving.

I want to do some testing while driving to other E85 stations. There are some long stretches of barren highway here. But I've been in bed from seasonal allergies.

I put ~E40 in yesterday but I haven't driven it long enough or hard enough to get a CEL. E85 is expensive here, but Gasoline finally jumped up enough to make a semi-decent spread. $2.99 vs $3.50 and Premium is $3.80. After this tank I'm going to put a tank of Regular for it's regular service.
