My brother's dealer told him he can NOT run e10...only pure gas. Is that true? He says it knocks on e10. I say B To the S.

Well there are millions of late model cars running E10, especially since most states don't even have pure gas anymore. Basically, he received bad advice from someone who likes to hear themselves talk.

Do parts of Illinois still have pure gas? Southeastern Wisconsin mandates E10 in 7 counties, then it's optional elsewhere. I'd be surprised if the Chicagoland area has pure gas available outside a marina.

A quick check of the owners manual for that vehicle on the Internet says that E10 is just fine to use and recommended. Also 87 octane is recommended. Top tier gasoline recommended. A search of the internet will tell you what gasoline stations in your area sell top tier gas.

Couldn't have said it any better. ALL late model cars are fine with E10.

LOL! there are literally millions of automobiles (up and until 2014/recent 2015 model year) operated by avg joes running E10 gasoline. You think E10 would be an issue (until now) that would cause problems? Happy black friday BTW. Q.

Ethanol in gasoline RAISES octane. Not the other way around. Yes, it lowers fuel efficiency, but it doesn't cause pinging. The opposite in fact.

crackmeup crzy smirk slobber duh stooges ontome Coffee2 I kinda fixed your question for you. And these $tealerships wonder why they have such a bad reputation? Really! If the idiots at the $tealership would have learned about their own products they would realize that E10 is perfectly fine to use in any 2013 Honda vehicle. It just happens that almost ALL gasoline sold in the USA today contains up to 10% ethanol.
