I would like to thank tomcat2door for his multiple answers of No.

Why do people post their same response over and over again in a topic?

tomtom08-Please forgive me for not giving a simple yes or no....

rugby2, have you ever used E15 or researched ethanol or even corn prices? I've discovered that the general public doesn't even realize that reg unleaded is already 10% ethanol!
I've compared my mpg, engine temps and performance using both E10 and E15. Absolutely no difference in temp. or performance. Mpg went from approx. 27mpg to 26.5mpg, with an average savings of 10 cents per gallon. Although I feel its foolish to drI've even one mile out of my way to save pennies, I will fill up on E15 when available.
As far as corn prices go, you may want to read up on that. Corn prices have been at their lowest in years. That may not last long due to that fact that farmers may be planting soybeans instead of corn in hopes to, 1, make more money selling the soybeans and 2. help to drive corn prices up a bit and 3. the cost it use a rail car to transport corn has gone +/- $700 per railcar to $4,000 per car. This is due to Burlington Northern, owned by Warren Buffet, realizing that its more profitable to ship crude vs. corn. --Thats a whole new thread in its self. Rail vs. pipeline.
The food vs. fuel debate doesn't hold water (no pun intended) either. The corn used for producing ethanol is not fit for human consumption. Also, once the ethanol is produced, the byproduct can be feed to animals.

Long story short, yes to E15 for 2001 or newer vehicles and E30 for Flex Fuel vehicles. No to E85--this product should be put to bed.
