I don't think it's recommended nor is it a good idea. Maybe E85 but even that isn't a very good idea.

E-10 is 10% and E-85 IS 85%. THE BIGGER THE NUMBER, THE MORE ALCOHOL. Alcohol absorbes moisture,Ethanol that is blended with gas makes LESS horsepower, and get fewer mileage numbers than regular gas.The alcolol eats up rubber fuel lines, gaskets, o-rings, o2 sensors, and drives the poor knock sensor crazy. It also attacks aluminum, and pot metal. So run as little as possiable, or buy a flex fuel vehicle.
