Asked by Jul 30, 2016 at 04:53 PM about the Ford Mustang SVT Cobra

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

My state labels its gasoline to have up to 10% ethanol mix. Will that harm my
2008 shelby cobra's engine?

2 Answers


no..but buy the best grade you can if you push it hard...


Your Shelby will be fine with up to 15% or E15 ethanol mix. E-10 will work just fine. Always buy name brand "top tier" fuel. Google "top tier gasoline" for more information.
