The flex fuel filler neck looks like this on the 2012+ Ford Focus.

Due to the second catalyst of the partial zero emissions vehicles it cleans the exhaust better, but apparently burning the E85 would not pass the requirements.
On E85 the car was rated at 20 city and 28 mpg highway for a combined rating of 23 mpg. Ergo its not very efficient at all compared to the standard 28 city 33 combined 38 mpg highway with the 6DCT250

MKIII PZEV mpg on e85?
Does anyone with the new pzev have any info on the mpg when running e85. Also this may be slightly unrelated but ive been running e85 for my last few tanks and havent noticed many Ill effects. Mpg drop of 4-9, and a slight decrease in pickup under wot but no check engine light. Only decided to since e85 is roughly $1 cheaper per gallon than gas. The price outweighs the mpg drop. And I dont have the pzev engine.
