    ALCOHOLIf you decide to use a gasoline containing alcohol gasohol be sure its octane rating is at least as high as that recommended by Honda There aretwo types of gasohol    one containing ethanol and the other  Do not use gasohol that contains more than 10 ethanol Donot use gasoline containing methanol methyl or wood alcohol that doesnot also contain cosolvents and corrosion inhibitors for methanol Neveruse gasoline containing more than 5 methanol even if it has cosolventsand corrosion  Fuel system damage or engine performance problems resulting from the  use of fuels that contain alcohol is not covered under the warranty  Honda cannot endorse the use of fuels containing methanol since  evidence of their suitability is as yet incompletel Before buying fuel from an unfamiliar station try to find out if the fuel  contains alcohol if it does confirm the type and percentage of alcohol  used If you notice any undesirable operating symptoms while using a  gasoline that contains alcohol or one that you think contains alcohol  switch to a gasoline that you know does not contain alcohol                                                                              II3 Other
