Is the cheaper petrol promotion at Sheetz good for your car or budget?

CLEVELAND, Ohio (WOIO) — This week, just before the holidays, the Sheetz gas station chain announced they would cut certain fuel prices for a limited time leading up to the July 4 holiday weekend to help travelers.

The chain has unleaded 85 capped at $3.99 a gallon and E85 at $3.49.

Both types of gas contain a certain amount of ethanol and may not be suitable for your car.

According to an press release from Sheetz:

“Unleaded 88 is approved by the EPA for use in vehicles model years 2001 or newer, as well as light trucks, SUVs, and Flex Fuel vehicles.* E85 contains more ethanol (51%-83%) and is not compatible with all vehicles. It is specially designed for ‘flexible fuel vehicles’ or FFVs. FFVs can use regular gasoline (E10), E15 or E85. When available, E85 is clearly labeled as a different fuel type and should not be used in standard vehicles. Check your owner’s manual to see if your car can run with E85.”
