E85 Usage In Non-Flex Fuel Vehicles
Non-FFV vehicles are compatible with gasoline contain-

To fix a Non-FFV vehicle inadvertently fueled once with

change the engine oil and oil filter
disconnect and reconnect the battery to reset the
engine controller memory
More extensive repairs will be required for prolonged
