Will 10% ethanol in 87 octain gas cause engine damage in 2004 RX 330? If yes, what can be done? Additive??what kind?

I vote that they keep all the ethanol in the corn in Iowa, where it belongs..... Hear me?

Sorry, I don't actually know the answer to your question, but do wish they'd quit producing it so the price of corn would go down and they'd keep politics out of our gas tanks!

Greetings from Iowa! The answer is no. A 10% blend of ethanol in 87 octane or 89 octane is fine. It is of course used here in a great number of cars and I have used in it both my 05' and 10'.

Actually Code, we export over 70% of the corn production for food products and use less than a few percent for ethanol. Ethanol produced from corn is a very expensive and inefficient process. Don't expect it to last forever.

That's good news Paul, it's gone on way to long now. I truly believe we would be a lot better off if a LOT of the politicians were in the unemployment line. I don't wish the corn farmers of Iowa any ill will at all (was born and raised in Illinois), just think the government is the problem, not the answer! Though they were far from perfect, I am old enough to long for the days of my youth when there was far less "HELP" from the Government. I wouldn't make a good socialist!
