i own a shop and i have a few customers who use it in theirs,and they haven't changed anything about the vehicle to get it to burn it,some people are saying it does better on ethanol than on gas,i use a mixture of it in my vehicles,and i seem to get better mileage from it that way,but yes it can use it,good luck hope this helps.

This link shows all the e85 compatable vehicles. As far as I know, there are no hondas that are e85 compatable. It will probably run on it for a while but you can expect engine damage in the future from a too lean mixture or parts of the fuel system not designed for alcohol. You would probably be safer running a mixture of up to 25% ethanol and 75% gasoline.http://www.e85fuel.com/e85101/flexfuelvehicles.php
