The dealer loaner I have currently does, yes.

With the current price spread though, I am using premium gasoline.

If I had this car a few weekends ago, I would have used E85.

2014 M-B C300 4matic.

"You're philosophically opposed to saving money?"

He's probably more philosophically opposed to being forced by the government and ethanol/farm lobby to use a product of their choice....

How odd that so many have cars that don't run on it. All my fuel injected ordinary vehicles do.

Grandma use to say "If you buy junk you get junk" I agree that quality comes with a price. For the long haul..... Notice how most saved shopping bags can be used over and over again then how some fall apart with the first use.

"think so" ???

.....

Well you'd be well advised to "know so" before trying it as you'll dang well live to regret the decision if it isn't.

When I had one of the first FFVs I wouldn't put E85 in it. Cost too much for too poor of MPG. E85 costs less per gallon but more per mile.
