Flexible or Alternative Fuel VehiclesE85 vehicles, Alternative Fuel Cars or vehicles (AFVs) and Flex-fuel cars designed to use E85. Light-duty flex-fuel cars include a wide range of alternative fuel cars for running the car on E85, from sedans to sport utility vehicles to pickup trucks to minivans. E85 Ethanol cars are more common than you may think! Alternative fuel cars are widely available: The Energy Information Administration estimates that more than four million flex-fuel cars are currently on U.S. roadways, although many buyers remain unaware that they have alternative fuel vehicles and may fuel with E85. Flexible Fuel Cars were first produced in 1991, so check your owner's manual, check the fuel filler door to determine if you drive a flex-fuel car that can fuel with E85. New models of alternative fuel cars are coming out all the time and there are approximately one million flex-fuel cars being produced each year including the major manufacturers such as General Motors, Ford, Mercury, Daimler Chrysler, Mercedes, Nissan and Mazda.
Flexible Fuel Cars have only one fueling system. To qualify as an alternative fuel vehicle (AFV) for tax credits, incentives, or to meet requirements for mandated fleets (federal, state, and fuel provider fleets) under the Energy Policy Act of 1992 (EPAct), a vehicle must be capable of using fuel blends up to 85% ethanol.
