Make sure you’re using the right gas for your 2020 Honda vehicle

Do any 2020 Honda vehicles use E85 Flex Fuel?
Honda engineers have done a lot of hard work to make the automaker’s lineup is as efficient as possible. A question we’ve been hearing around the showroom lately is a continuation of one that we’ve been asked by customers for a while. So, do any 2020 Honda vehicles use E85 Flex Fuel? Things are always changing with new models, so a team of Meridian Honda product experts went through all the available 2020 Honda vehicle information to see if any major changes have been made. While Honda vehicles don’t use E85 right now, customers do have a lot of efficient options including hybrid platforms and even, hydrogen fuel cell vehicle – in some markets. Let’s take a look at a few things you might find interesting.
Flex fuels (aka E85) contain a blend of gasoline and ethanol, which is alcohol. Fuel containing ethanol is reported to burn cleaner which will release fewer pollutants into the atmosphere. It was also developed to help make gasoline cheaper to sell at a time when prices were rising quickly. Vehicles that use E85 might not make as much power as they would if they were using regular unleaded gasoline.
What happens if I use E85 anyway?
As we’ve covered before in a blog about regular versus premium gasoline, using the right kind of fuel is important to get the most out of a vehicle. This naturally applies to the inadvertent use of flex-fuel. In the event someone accidentally fills their gas tank with E85 instead of regular fuel, there is no need to panic. If this is a one-time mistake, it’s no big deal.
Experts say it will be ok to just run the vehicle using that fuel. However, you might notice that your vehicle is lacking in power and efficiency might take a hit as well. The check engine light might also be activated.

Just wanted to say "Thank you!" for verifying an issue with a tire on my daughter's 2007 Honda Civic as I was driving her from the greater Houston area to Charlotte (and her on to Virginia). The Service team was friendly, accommodating, communicative at every step and if we lived anywhere close, I'd bring vehicles in there for service. Thanks again for taking care of ... us today on our travels!
Caring and professional work. The people were friendly. Would recommend to everyone. I have always had a very good experience.
Came in for an oil change and tire rotation and Josh let me know a couple more things that needed to be done.
Noone was pushy, they listened to what I wanted. They were very fair to deal with. My time in and out was fast.
Fast and Friendly to the most satisfactory degree. Always ready to do what is needed and always referenced me as to the work done or needed.
