Summit E85?
 
Hi everyone,
I'm a newB and have a basic and perhaps dumb question.. But, what type of fuel can you put in the 2014 Jeep GC Summit? E85 only or 87 also?

Please advise,
Thanks!

As long as it's an E-85 rated engine, you can use 87 and higher.

Your owner's manual should explain that.

Don't believe anything you are told on the internet, including what I tell you, without verifying in the manual. In fact, you could save time by checking the manual first. ;)

You can download the latest manual at Jeep.com . It is easier to search for things with the digital version than with the paper version.

You can used E85, or regular 87 and above. You also should be able to use anything in between. I think it recommends NOT mixing the two: 1/2 tank of E85 with 1/2 tank regular 87. During our Christmas trip, I saw E15, E20, E30, E85 at a Cenex station -- all stated they could be used in a Flex Fuel vehicle. I stuck with the Regular 87 (ethanol-free).

If I'm not mistaken, you cannot use E85 with the Hemi V8. I believe FlexFuel is only supported on the V6. Check your manual for specifications. You didn't mention what engine is in your Summit, unless I missed that...

You are not mistaken, E85 and the Hemi are not supported per the OM.
.... wonder how 50% nitromethane would be viewed.
