nothing really, It will just ride more rich and you'll have to service it a bit more often

If you put E85 in a vehicle that is not a FlexFuel vehicle you will have serious problems. The E85 will cause major problems with the fuel lines and all other parts it comes in contact with. The E85 is much more corrosive than regular gasoline. Do not use E85 in a vehicle that is not FlexFuel.

Your car would sputter like you put water in the tank. Luckily, if you put in regular gasoline afterward, your car will forgive you. I found this out the hard way in my 1998 Ford Taurus Station Wagon. The car survived running 2 times on e85 and then regular gas. (Not the broken radiator, though.)

Can e85 fuel be used in your 2006 Pontiac G6?

If the car is a Flex-Fuel vehicle then yes you can use E85. If it is not a Flex-Fuel vehicle you cannot use E85. Using E85 will damage components. As far as I know your 2006 Pontiac G6 is not a Flex-Fuel vehicle. Reads your owner's manual to be sure.
