Flex Fuel Vehicles

Although E10 (10 percent ethanol blend) is common throughout Nebraska – and across the country – the use of E85 (a blend of 85 percent ethanol and 15 percent regular unleaded gasoline) is also growing thanks to continued sales of flex fuel vehicles (FFVs). Flex fuel vehicles are built to use regular unleaded gasoline , E10, E85 or any combination of ethanol and regular gas, including the E20 and E30 blends.
