If you're just burning the standard 10% ethanol mix your 05 Audi 
shouldn't have any problem.  Supposedly, cars since 1998 should be OK on 
E10 and my '99 Chrysler handles it just fine.  E85, however, is a 
different kettle of fish since it's 85% ethanol and only 15% gas.  Don't 
use it unless your owner's manual explicitly states that E85 is OK.  The 
car might not even run on E85 since it requires significant increases in 
fuel pressure and fuel volume as regulated by the injectors.  It also 
requires a higher compression ratio to be able to efficiently extract 
the energy in ethanol.
