Black smoke means burning too much gas. The air/fuel mixture is off. Go to a mechanic and have it adjusted

What kind od gas does my 2002 ford taurus take no ethanol or ethanol?


The government mandated 10% ethanol in all gasoline fuel sold for automobiles, so You have to use ethanol blended fuel just about everywhere. That blend is suppose to go up to 15% shortly.

Can my 2001 lincoln navigator use ethanol


Check with your Ford dealer to be sure, but generally any car can use gasoline with up to 10% ethanol blended in. To use a higher percentage of ethanol, such as E-85 (85% ethanol, 15% gasoline), it requires a special fuel pump and a special computer program, and sometimes other changes as well.
So unless the vehicle is marked for E-85 or another alternate fuel, I would not use more than a 10% ethanol/90% gasoline blend.

My 2003 Kia Rio calls for no more than 5% ethanol fuel additive and locally only 10% fuel mix is available. What should I do?


You can't do anything if the correct fuel is not available, 5% more ethanol won't hurt anything UNLESS you let the car sit with a tank of fuel, the ethanol attracts water, water creates RUST and this rust will clog your fuel lines.

The ethanol OVER TIME will eat away at the fuel lines IF indeed they are not designed to handle that much ethanol %.

Otherwise don't worry.

My 1991 F-150 stalled out on me after driving 200 miles in 90 degree weather I flashed out the codes which told me it had a lean burn, primary fuel circuit failure, secondary fuel circuit faiure, and ecm...


Ethanol fuel in hot weather will vapour lock easier than the old non-ethanol fuels.
Maybe that was all it was.
I get the calls ........usually from shopping centers on very hot days on cranking but no start cars.....and it is 80% just a vapourized fuel problem. TOO HOT FOR THE FUEL UNDER THE HOOD.
The cars start the next morning....or late in the evening.

Engine code p0420 on 2002 Chevrolet Express Van V8


Hello!

the code you speak of relates strictly to the catalytic converter. it is possible there is a faulty sensor, however that choice is highly unlikely. Catalytic converters carry a 5/50 7/70 and 8/80 warranty depending upoin the state you live in...this may be a repair covered under manufacturers warranty. this code is becoming very prevelant in many auto lines as a result of the insurgence of ethanol dilution of our fuels. the "10%" ethanol sticker is located on most pumps. Most vehicles on the road today are not flex fuel capable and this ethanol is wreaking havoc on our fuel and emission systems, especially the catalytic converters. the converters are caked with deposits from the ethanol, reducing its effeciency. if your have access to well worth branded products (not available in ANY parts store, typicaly dealers and repair shops only) try adding on succesive tank loads of fuel their product called Octi-Plus. this products helps remove ethanol products, and very well may save yoiu big $$$ for that converter repair bill...i hope this helps..check out this link....

Premium 91 or 95


Hello Joshdhorz,

The best fuel you can use on your vehicle is any octane that contains at max 10% ethanol.

Ethanol is an alcohol-based fuel additive made by fermenting and distilling crops that have been broken down into simple sugars.

A 10% blend of ethanol and gasoline will not harm any engine or fuel system component. However, the ethanol has a cleaning effect that will remove rust and other junk from the fuel system. This necessitates frequent fuel filter changes until the fuel system is cleaned out.

Most gas stations in our area are set like so:

87 octane (Up to 10% ethanol)
89 octane (Up to 5% ethanol)
91 octane (No ethanol)

Now we do not have 93 or 95 octane available to us here, so I am currently unsure as to what is in 95 octane fuels. In my opinion, I would use 91 octane (No ethanol) for the majority, while adding 87 or 89 octane (5-10% ethanol) ever so often to clean the lines.

I hope this helps you out,

Shadow

Also if you would not mind taking a moment out of your day and rating my solution it would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance!

HOW DOES IT RUN ON ETHANOL FUEL?


In 2004,Ford had a flex fuel vehicle that would allow you to put regular fuel or fuel with up to 10 percent ethanol. I don't think they intended it to run on 100 percent ethanol.You can access the website www.motorcraft.com, there is a technical section where you can post the same question. Good Luck
