Gas w/o Ethanol

Sorry I entered this question is the wrong area. Laptop computer, small print and bad eyesight.

Can I run straight gas - non-ethanol gas? This would be for an N55. I know the octane level is lower but would it be better, overall, for the engine?

Yes you can. It actually helps not leach water into the fuel system. You get slightly better fuel economy too.
