Fuel e-85

We have rented a jeep Cherokee, are not from America and now need to refuel. It's an E-85 model. What gases can we safely refuel with. We are on low, in Austin and haven't come across e-85 in any gas station

Anything at the pump except diesel.

It is rated to run on E85, but it is also able to run on Regular and will run on mid-grade or premium with just a bit of money wasted on those two.

Really? Is this about the Grand Cherokee? Because the owners manual for the 2014 Cherokee says neither the 4 or 6 cylinder engines are E-85 compatible. Warnings and repair instructions are provided.

Yeah, I second that. Only the 3.6 in the grand cherokee is a flex fuel motor.

Has to be the Grand Cherokee. The regular Cherokee is not E85 compatible. Hope the OP doesn't use that stuff
