Can your vehicle use E85 Ethanol?
Unknown to many US consumers, millions of FlexFuel vehicles — configured to run off E85 fuel, which is 85% Ethanol by content — are already cruising the highways.
A look under the hood of our 2000 Chrysler Grand Voyager minivan — sporting a 3.3 liter FlexFuel 6-cylinder engine — confirmed that the vehicle is able to run off the mixture. Literally millions of E85-friendly vehicles are on the road today, ranging from select 1999 Mazda 3.OL B3000 pickups to a few dozen GM, Ford and Chrysler vehicles produced between 1999 and 2006.
