E-10 Fuel Question

Ok, I have been looking around on the site and other places to. I was wanting to double check and make sure that my truck can run on E-10. I have a 99 with the 2.5L. I am in Iowa from Indiana visiting my grandpa. Almost all of the stations I have seen along the way just have like unleaded plus that says may contain up to 10% ethanol. It is cheaper by $0.10 to. I know about worse mileage. Can I run this?

Yeah, it'll work. Most of the gas stations around here say that on the pumps too. I notice a slight loss of millage, but not much.

In the Portland City limits, i'm REQUIRED to fill using E10 year round. Soon Oregon in it's entirety will be ALL E10 stations. It sucks! The truck runs like garbage, and mileage blows. I can really tell in my old chevy...runs like garbage on E10 pump gas...so i use aviation 100+ octane now. lol.
