Q: Will E85 cause damage to my 2013 Ford F250

asked by on

Had a quarter of a tank left and accidentally put 5 gallons of e85 in it, got most of it out but noticed it cranks hard and a little bit longer, drove it for a few miles and run good, did I damage anything?

My car has 43000 miles.

Hello. E85 can cause some serious damage to your fuel system, especially to the seals in the system. If you flushed the majority of it out and added fresh diesel then you will more than likely be just fine and will not have any lasting issues.
