Flex Fuel

Are you ready to buy new vehicles to replace the units that are becoming unreliable or that get “left in the shed” by the drivers because of their condition or reputation? Do you realize you could save thousands in operation expenses by buying replacement vehicles that take advantage of lower cost and environmentally friendly alternative fuels? If so you’ve come to the right place.

Flexible fuel vehicles (FFVs) are designed to run on gasoline or a blend of up to 85%

ethanol (E85). Except for a few engine and fuel system modifications, they are identical to gasoline-only models.

FFVs have been produced since the 1980s, and dozens of models are currently available. Since FFVs look just like gasoline-only models, you may have an FFV and not even know it. To determine if your vehicle is an FFV, check the inside of your car’s fuel filler door for an identification sticker or consult your owner’s manual.

FFVs experience no loss in performance when operating on E85. However, since a gallon of ethanol contains less energy than a gallon of gasoline, FFVs typically get about 20-30% fewer miles per gallon when fueled with E85.
