yes you can, FLEX fuel Vehicles are an alternative fuel vehicles with an internal combustion engine designed to run on more than one fuel, usually gasoline blended with either ethanol or methanol fuel, and both fuels are stored in the same common tank.

Regular gasoline, E-10 all the way up to E-85 (85% ethanol). The higher the E number you use the larger the drop in fuel mileage. Just DO NOT put diesel in it.

Aviation gas still has some lead.

Ok I was wondering because my truck says flexfuel but I been putting in 91 in it


That is fine. Flex fuel system means you can run the E85 corn gas and or the regular unleaded gas. 91 or 87 octane is fine.

Yes you can umair007, I have 2010 Impala flex fuel. I run the regular 87 octane gas in it.

The regular unleaded 87 octane gas is even better than the E85 corn gas. The E85 is just an alternative fuel.

I have a 2015 Ford Focus Hagback and it seems to be drinking my gas when I use 87 unleaded do I need to start using mid grade gas or is something wrong with my car ?


CR1D may need to change the air filter. Also make sure you have the proper air pressure in your tires, and keep your foot out of the gas pedal...

Is there a problem starting a flex fuel engine and turn it on and off in a short time causing it to run bad?


No there should not be any problem starting. You must have some problems starting to arise. If the check engine light is on go to a auto parts store and have the vehicle scanned for trouble codes. Write them down for diagnostics.
