Yes it is. Problem is , ethanol eats up the rubber hoses and seals/O rings. Besides that, old engines will run on it. Just don't run it under 40 degrees outside temperature. Well not even the flex fuel cars either.

How do I fix

It is possible that the gasoline deteriorated to the point that it is no longer gasoline. It depends on how long the car sat. If the gasoline is bad, it will have to be drained out and new gasoline added back into the gas tank.

The motor missed fire an acceleretion . after the truck was stop over 1 mounth.(escape 2003)

I'll bet it misfires because of the old gasoline. Since it was sitting for that long, you should remove the old gasoline from the car and put in fresh gasoline. You might want to put in a can of seafoam in the gas tank as well to clean up anything the old gasoline could have left behind.

Next time, if you're planning to have your car sit for a few weeks or more, put fuel stabilizer (such as Seafoam) into the gas tank before you leave. That way, you can safely start it when you come back.

Why do I get such poor petrol consumption and what should I expect

depending on driving about 20 mpg

air filter
poor/ dirty/ old spark plugs
bad plug wires
old gasoline
polluted gasoline
dirty fuel filter
dirty injectors

You can also try Lucas Fuel treatment -- it works with cleaning the injectors, but will not take care of the entire list above,. ie it won't clean a dirty fuel filter - that you'd have to replace.

Whoopie cushon/balloon noise

Try disconnecting the air intake and see what happens (that won't harm the engine). I don't believe it will harm the engine w/ this noise, although it might be a little embarrassing. They have been using corn to make gasoline, I wonder if they started using beans?
Let me know the results and any new clues you may think of or the truck may develop. Have someone under the hood when u shut truck off to see it they can figure exactly where it's coming from. Beano in the gas tank? No, No, don't do that. countrycurt0
