Your engine can actually be destroyed if the ethanol content in the fuel you use is too high. That’s one reason AAA has come out against the new 15% ethanol blends. They’re only supposed to be used in the most recent vehicles. But a lot of consumers are confused about the difference, and there likely will be many cases where E15 is fueled into a vehicle not designed to handle it. In some cases, the cost to replace the engine in a vehicle is more expensive than just purchasing a new car. And the large majority of insurance companies do not provide coverage for these types of damages and losses, so you are on your own if this happens to you.
