Gasoline containing oxygenates

Gasoline containing oxygenates  - Fuel recommendation - Capacities and recommended fuel/lubricants - Technical and consumer information - Infiniti G Owners Manual - Infiniti G

Some fuel suppliers sell gasoline containing oxygenates such as ethanol, MTBE and methanol with or without advertising their presence. INFINITI does not recommend the use of fuels of which the oxygenate content and the fuel compatibility for your INFINITI cannot be readily determined. If in doubt, ask your service station manager.

If you use oxygenate-blend gasoline, please take the following precautions as the usage of such fuels may cause vehicle performance problems and/or fuel system damage.

The fuel should be unleaded and have an octane rating no lower than that recommended for unleaded gasoline.

If an oxygenate-blend, excepting a methanol blend, is used, it should contain no more than 10% oxygenate.

(MTBE may, however, be added up to 15%.).

If a methanol blend is used, it should contain no more than 5% methanol (methyl alcohol, wood alcohol). It should also contain a suitable amount of appropriate cosolvents and corrosion inhibitors. If not properly formulated with appropriate cosolvents and corrosion inhibitors, such methanol blends may cause fuel system damage and/or vehicle performance problems.

At this time, sufficient data is not available to ensure that all methanol blends are suitable for use in INFINITI vehicles.

If any undesirable driveability problems such as engine stalling or hard hot starting are experienced after using oxygenateblend fuels, immediately change to a non-oxygenate fuel or a fuel with a low blend of MTBE.

Take care not to spill gasoline during refueling. Gasoline containing oxygenates can cause paint damage.
