None of my current vehicles do, and neither will my next one, unless the Toyota Sienna or Honda Odyssey become available as a FFV. Those are the only 2 that we're considering for our next vehicle.

When looking at E85 as being "cheaper", you have to look at the cost per mile, not the price per gallon.

My Ranger won't run on E85. Frankly, I think in another couple of years, we won't have E85. Hopefully, we'll be in a conversion to butanol, maybe even biobutanol.

It will, but it will also never have it in its tank.

Sure it's cheaper, but it also lowers fuel economy 15-25%

One does, but I've never used E85 in it. If I could get E0, I'd use it.

No truck is 21 years old so it runs on unleaded gas. May instal the grease engine since I can fuel it for free. Jay Farrug.
