So I am about to get tuned for E85 in my LGT and I started to read about the differences between normal gas cars and E85 cars. Looks like do not put magnesium, aluminum and rubber parts in the fuel system. It is also conductive, so they use additional methods for preventing arcing in the fuel system and tank.

So my question is. Does our car have any magnesium, aluminum and rubber parts in the fuel system? If so, doesn't that mean that something bad will happen eventually? Is there any worry about a fire or something from arcing in the fuel system? Thanks.
