    Default Straight Gas

    All:
    I have a 2015 C7 and live in an area where the premium gasoline at most stations is 100 gasoline. No 10% ethanol. As the engines are set to run on 10% ethanol, I am wondering if this is any issue with the engine. I called my Chevy dealer and his view was, "everything should be OK, but I am not sure". It would seem to me that the car should just run better as there is a higher level of BTU's in the fuel. Anyone have an answer or thought here.

    The engine is not set to run on 10% ethanol, but yes it will and can.

    If you do not have to use ethanol, don't.
