Are you driving a flex fuel car and don’t even know it?

February 4th, 2014 BY Bart | 50 Comments

Below you’ll find a list of all vehicles that are on the road today and are Flex Fuel cars. Meaning you can run you car on ethanol (E85) or regular fuel.

Currently ethanol isn’t as cheap as it can be, but there are more gas stations opening which offer it and with higher demand it will become cheaper. Ethanol is grown and produced in North America, meaning less dependency on foreign oil and creation of new jobs.

Beginning with 2007 models, the Chrysler Group vehicles capable of using both gasoline and ethanol will carry a special badge. The gas caps also will be yellow, the color associated with ethanol. In the near future maybe we’ll see more car manufactures advertising this feature of their vehicles.

    I have a 2004 4×4 Ford Explorer, and a 2000 4×4 Ford Ranger. I have been making my own ethanol for 3 years now. Since I live in Florida, I get all the free oranges, grapefruits, rotting fruit, etc that I can handle. I am happy to say my cost of making my own ethanol is 23 cents per gallon. I make 55 gallons of fuel at a time on a continuous still setup in a single day. 55 gallons lasts me 2-3 months. I use discarded broken wood pallets to fuel the still. It takes 3 barrels of fruit to produce 55 gallons of pure fuel. I do not mix 15 percent gasoline. I use it straight. That’s right. There is no need to mix 15 percent gasoline. You can use dry gas, STP, or marvelous mystery oil to keep yourself legal. There are also kits available online for under $100 to convert any fuel injected vehicle to run on either gas or ethanol without any fancy engineering skills. Its just plug & play…My daughters 2002 Chrysler Sebring is not Flexfuel, but runs perfectly fine with the add-on module. You just have to keep an eye on the fuel lines. They may start to break down if they are substandard.

    I drive a 2003 Hyundai XG350L. I was wondering if it can use E85. I checked the owners manual and it said it could use ‘Gasohol’ whatever that is (90% unleaded, 10% ethanol), so I’m fairly certain it can’t. Is there perhaps a kit or something I can put or have put on my car that will enable me to use E85? Also my wife drives a Saturn Vue, not sure on the year, 2000+. Do you know if hers can be converted? Please e-mail me.

    With the steep drop in the price of oil currently, I guess people who own such cars would choose oil as the fuel used to power their cars. I don’ t think they want to pay extra just because they can save the environment for doing so as the economy is so bad currently.

    why are all these cars gas guslers. why don they make a 1.2l runaround car for round town use. it should do about 200mpg :)

      Because E85 gets worse MPG then straight gas. It has alower octane rating as well as lower btu output.

        ethanol has a HIGHER octane rating – e85 is near 108 octane.. if you add compression it will get better milage than a gasoline car.

        For your information Ethanol runs cleaner, and more effeciently than gasoline. Using oil to convert to gas equals negative energy output. Unless you’re fond of supporting countries that support terrorist, just like the ones that hit the twin towers fine just keep on filling up with oil based fuel.

      I am too interested in flex fuel technology. And before this I have constructed compressed air engine which can refill 1/5 part of air to the tank. I am trying to modify it for a short route vehicle. I am from nepal and I need frns like you for team work. I have already designed but I am student so I am not getting more time for it. Due to not having team I am getting late for it. I hope you understand the problem of techinician. I wish to join my team and complete the project. I dont force you but if u r interested in my project then I will send my designs up to you.You r most welcome to my project. I look forward to your quick response.

      its possible to convert any car to ethanol or e85. if you want good milage and performance – raise the compression & tune it specifically for e85…. where the trouble is is trying to burn both. you have to leave the compression less than 10 to 1 for gas but can tolerate 12 to 1 for ethanol… there are a number of white papers out about using a turbo charger and software to adjust the effective compression based on the fuel used, more boost for e85, less boost for gas.

      I used to have a 95 Jeep Cherokee and the E85 Ran Fine in it I would always keep about a quarter tank premium gas with it (it actually cost less at the station I used) But I would only get like 14 mi to gallon as aposed the usual 17 mpg I would get on regular gas but it saved some cash never had a prob with the gas messing up the car I eventually just had to get a new vehicle because I was drive between 90 to 150 miles per day going back and forth between school work and home none of which were close together.

    On Brazil (south america) almost all vehicles are flex fuel (gasoline and ethanol) and here exists the GNV too (Natural Vehicular Gas), not so common but ”vehicles for work” are using massively. The cost of this options are almost the same, with little diference.

    My Dodge caravan gets worse fuel economy with the Ethanol blends . . .plus- they are highly subsidized by the gov’t which makes them more expensive than opec etc.It’s a way to keep farmers going but there is no use for the bi-product and the tractors & trucks that haul it around still run on diesel & gas.The way we do it right now is not a viable option

      You couldn’t be any further from the truth first of all depending on the make and year of your car, it could be made to run on pure ethanol. At 105 octane rating it should be running more efficiently. As far as the farmers are concerned you can make ethanol out of waste material, such as garbage etc. Both gas and diesel engines can be converted to run on ethanol. Maybe, you believe what the giant oil companies want you to believe, but in reality they are in business to make large profits. Just look at the oil prices today, and this is just the beginning. So, go ahead and keep them rich and meanwhile keep funding the countries that fund terrorist.

    Unless you like supporting countries that support terrorist consider using ethanol in your vehicle. It is more effecient, and if you make your own, much cheaper. Let’s not forget it burns much cleaner, so it doesn’t leave a carbon footprint. Oh, and you don’t have to wait several million years to renew the environmentally friendly fuel.

    Flex fuels use more energy to create the fuel than you get back. And look at the food prices since corn went from $3 to $7 a bushel in part because of the flex fuels. We need a better plan to get off of foreign oil!!
