Just for confirmation, will my '03 TC engine be harmed by use of these ethanol infused fuels? The 8th VIN number = "W". As noted on earlier posts, such fuels have been used for many years now.

The 03 should be fine with the 10% ethanol blend used in today's unleaded fuels. To see if your TC is flex fuel, check the VIN or the emissions label under the hood. The emissions label will also tell you the model year of the car, if there is a question.

Thanks for the response. The car is not a FFV, but I feel better knowing that the e10 isn't harmful....in fact it appears that only fuel above e15 will require any modification.

Ethonal 10% additive is not harmful to the engine of most cars in the US. However for info Ethonal can be harmful to classic cars using the old rubber fuel flex lines. There is an approved fuel hose out that will work on these older cars and per spec 30R9. Asking for a fuel injection hose the size you want will usually get you the proper replacement line.
