but my current car was built in 1994 and would most certainly not take too well to a higher concentration of ethanol in the pipes. Ethanol is corrosive, and attracts water and condensation, both of which is not so good for the fuel lines. Older non flex fuel cars which can't adjust their timing to accommodate for the fact that ethanol has its own oxygen supply and adjust the fuel injection or air metering to compensate and adjust for the different stoichiometric air fuel ratio could end up running too lean and burning valves or pistons.
Do you have any actual experience? I've been using E30 in a 1995 Ford Aspire since August of 2002 and it still runs great. I just bought my March built Focus because I found out it is FlexFuel. I want to use E85 and have about 220 miles on this tank of E85 with the Average Fuel Economy saying 33.7 when I put it in the garage yesterday. Total miles on the car is about 850 so it should break in even more.

E85 should only go in cars designed for it. Recently built '12 Focuses have 'flex fuel' tags, so those can run on it. But if it says 'no E85', don't use.

My manual transmission White Met Tri-Coat

Picked up my Titanium Focus last week. Took 6 weeks to order a manual transmission but it's definitely been worth it. This is now my daily driver which I have about a ~75 mile round trip commute. My Audi is now a garage queen.

Cool Got it last week!

I picked up mine last week. 401A White Platinum Titanium with handling pack and luxury pack. Took some photos but then it rained. Still waiting for the weather to get better so I can wash it.. So far the only mod I made is LED bulb for the trunk lights.

I wanted to tint the windows but the dealer wanted $580 ish for it :( Gotta look around for places to tint. Any recommendations for tinting around Toronto/GTA area?

Picked this up with about 150 miles on it. SEL with premium sound+mft. It's a little dirty. About 3400 miles on it now. I want to put the fswerks stealth and some intake on it but it's my wife's DD

The forth pic doesn't show the "Focus" badge. Did it not come with it or did you ask the dealer to remove it?
