GMC Terrain: Fuel / Prohibited Fuels (Gasoline)

Caution

Do not use fuels with any of the following conditions; doing so may damage the vehicle and void its warranty:

  • For vehicles that are not FlexFuel, fuel labeled greater than 15% ethanol by volume, such as mid-level ethanol blends (16–50% ethanol), E85, or FlexFuel.
  • Fuel with any amount of methanol, methylal, ferrocene, and aniline. These fuels can corrode metal fuel system parts or damage plastic and rubber parts.
  • Fuel containing metals such as methylcyclopentadienyl manganese tricarbonyl (MMT), which can damage the emissions control system and spark plugs.
  • Fuel with a posted octane rating of less than the recommended fuel. Using this fuel will lower fuel economy and performance, and may decrease the life of the emissions catalyst.

    LYX - 1.5L L4 Turbo Engine Do not use any fuel labeled E85 or FlexFuel. Do not use gasoline with ethanol levels greater than 15% by volume. Use regular unleaded gasoline meeting ASTM specification D4814 with a posted octane rating of 87 or higher...
