RICHMOND, Va. (WTVR) -- The next time you pull up to the pump be sure to double-check what fuel you're using.

AAA is saying that the new E15 gasoline is bad for cars made before 2012 -- and that the government should stop it from being sold.

E15 is a mixture of gas that is 15 percent ethanol, and many car companies say their warranties won't cover any damage the fuel does to engines.

However, officials said E10 ethanol is still safe for your car.
