E85 Compatible Vehicles


According to the National Ethanol Vehicle Coalition, approximately 6 million flex-fuel vehicles were sold in the United States (up to 2007), yet many buyers still remain unaware that they own a car or truck that could utilize E85. Flexible fuel vehicles (FFVs) are engineered to run on blends of gasoline and ethanol in any ratio up to 85 percent ethanol. E85 is 85 percent ethanol and 15 percent gasoline.

It is important to use E85 in accordance with the manufacturers’ specifications—remember to check your owners' manual and follow the guidelines there since each manufacturer has its own specs.
