Conclusion is: Diesel makes Explorer to fart as beans do to me.
This clearly confirms what I always thought about diesel: only fit for farting ;-)

I normally run 87 in mine and it is an E10 blend.   I have had times when I needed to put pure 91 with no ethanol in and didn't notice any difference between them.  I have never used 85 in the Tiger and I wouldn't.  We used to have it when I lived in SD and there were a lot of motors that didn't seem to like it. 

Keep in mind in the US, when the sticker says E10 it can have up to 10% ethanol but it could have anything below.  The mixture varies by who is mixing it.  It could have 1%, it just has to be 10% or less.
