Drain it. Drain out all of it. Drain tank then purge EVAP and fuel rail before starting again.This is moderately serious. Could be worse, if you get it all out you will be fine. Don't worry about any E85 between fuel rail and injectors, it's not good but will cause no damage, short or long term if you get it all out then run a while. The 'E' is 85% denatured ethanol. Alcohol. Which IF your car is set up for FFV, is not necessarily a bad thing. But I know of no 2006 Corollas that were built to accept E85, at least not from factory. Engines not designed or modified to use E85 will have increased wear and may fail prematurely
