If you have a flex fuel vehicle you can use E85 ethanol.your power will be the same but your mileage will be less than what your getting now. e.g. if your getting 20mpg now, it'll Prolly drop to abt 15mpg. Do you know what mpg your getting now? If it has drastically dropped, you may have repairs that need to be made.(like spark plugs or coils). Does your vehicle run as good as it always has? Does it feel like the engine may be shaking either at an idle or accelerating? This could indicate a misfire which would hurt your fuel mileage.
