If your car is a partial zero emissions vehicle (PZEV) they have a second catalyst behind the main catalyst in the exhaust manifold.

All PZEV vehicles were not available with flex fuel compatibility for 2012+ as far as I know.

Knock off the Liberal stuff

I believe the Tax Payers should have a choice in fuel. Since its my car and I don't want to ruin it just to please the bleeding heart Liberals.
Knock off the liberal bashing stuff please, your side has plenty to account for, like 4500 dead in Iraq that did not need to be in a war for the texas shrub and 5 deferment draft dodger cheney.

This isn't a political thread, so how about just knock it off in general.


I ran E85 for it's performance benefits, and it did its job fairly well. End of story. If my ST was flex fuel, I'd use it now. Its not for everyone. Run it if you want, if not, don't.

With all the Arguing back and forth , we wonder why our Country/Gov. is going to shit... Politics has no place here from Either of you. Be Proud of who/what you are and enjoy life. To me they are all a bit

Sure glad I have my FFV Focus----E85 is about a $1.16 a gallon less so works pretty well while the oil companies play with the gas lovers.

Where? It's about a 5% price differential in Atlanta.

I'm in NW Iowa. Being close to the source helps cut out to many middlemen. Our E0 is $4. If you look at the link, you can see Ohio also has a very good spread, as well as Mn.
