I have a 2005 Mazda 3. I accidentally put E15 fuel in it. About a gallon and a half went in before I noticed the poorly placed warning and stopped. I finished filling with my usual gas. Have I done any damage to my car and what should I do if I did?

Do you
have the same problem?

Drive it. The extra ethanol will be diluted by the regular gas which also most likely has some ethanol that hasn't caused a problem. Most gas today has 10 percent ethanol unless it is specifically advertised as having none.
