Can you destroy a gasoline _engine_ by running E85 in it? I know it can corrode the fuel lines on older cars (pre-1990), but I've heard someone say it will cause the engine to seize up because of the higher octane.

Ethanol also burns much cooler than Gasoline, so it's better for your engine in the long run.

Thanks!
