    The 91 is OK. I won't run ethanol in any car if I can help it!

    10% ethanol is save to run in your 01. It's fuel system was designed to run on gasoline having as much as 10% ethanol.

    When gas spiked up to $4+ a gal. they started putting 10% ethanol in all grades of fuel around central TN. Ever since all gas pumps around here have a sticker on them stating all grades contain up to 10% ethanol.
