As I stated in an earlier post to wilecoyote_1998, all Nissan vehicles manufactured from January 2004 onwards are capable of operation on ethanol blends up to E10 (10% ethanol). The 10% ethanol blend available at CostCo is safe for your MO.

That's right. And if fossil fuel is used to produce the energy to produce Ethanol, we end up emitting roughly twice the greenhouse gas by using ethanol.njjoe said:
Remember, it takes more energy to produce a gallon of ethanol than is in the gallon of ethanol. Energy-wise, it is a losing proposition.
