E-15 in Ecoboost?

Recommended Posts

The gas station by my house just recently got renovated and they added some new fuel types to the mix. The gas cap on my Ecoboost Edge says it can handle E15 but I just wanted to know if anyone has had any experience with it. I have used it for 2 tanks now and I do not notice any tuning differences or gas mileage loss. I just wonder about the claim on the pump that says it "burns cleaner." I wonder if this has any effect on carbon build up or anything, yes I know that in a direct injection engine the fuel quality won't effect how clean the valves are because they aren't sprayed, but maybe the cleaner burn provides less of a chance for build up when both the intake and exhaust valves are open for that small period of time. Regardless the savings in price are nice, especially when it doesn't appear to be doing any harm.
