    I see where more and more Non-ethanol gasoline is available. I do use 93 octane 10% ethanol now. I was wondering what the benefits and downside of using non-ethanol gasoline in the Hellcat is?
    Appreciate y'al's thoughts.

    I've been running it.. Seems to run about $.40/gal more than the ethanol stuff. Haven't noticed any difference

    i cant get premium in non ethanol in my area. I do run the 87 corn free in my 02 Ford work van and my 08 police vic, Harley and lawn mower as it runs so much better and has more power ( requires less right foot). I wonder with the supercharger if you would see a difference?
    I just wish we had our 100% gas back... Corn is for eating and drinking!

    Ethanol is known to be more corrosive... Check it out & form your own opinion...

    Ethanol gasoline is every lawn mowers kryptonite over time.

    Yep I agree, that crap has killed off a pressure washer, lawn mower, weed eater, snow blower and my boys dirt bike! I switched to using only non ethanol gas in all my small engine stuff and have had no problems in the last year.

    If you start out with ethanol, your fine, but ethanol has less energy ie worse fuel economy. But if you can e85 and your car converted to run it, it runs cooler and gives more hp

    All depends on gas blend. Some will some wont. Some have it, some do not. I'd rather run 93 pure over 93 with ethanol. But I'd rather run 93 with ethanol over 91 pure

    Stoichiometric air-fuel ratio for the most common fuels:

    • Natural gas:17.2
    • Gasoline: 14.7
    • Propane:15.5
    • Ethanol:9
    • Methanol:6.4
    • Hydrogen:34
    • Diesel:14.6
    Notice you have to burn more ethanol. Like watering down your fuel.

    We have a ton of corn to turn to fuel because other countries do not want it. GMO may be a part of it.
