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.
By filling your FFV with a higher ethanol blend, you’ll be using more renewable, cleaner-burning ethanol and less oil-based gasoline. It’s a win-win for you and the environment!
RU Cool 2 Flex Fuel?
Thousands of Nebraskans are driving flex fuel vehicles. And you may be, too! Many flex fuel vehicles have gas caps or other labeling on them, or they are identified in the owner’s manual. If you’re unsure about your vehicle, this list of flex fuel vehicles may help.
If you are cool to flex fuel, keep an eye out for E85 or other ethanol blends like E20 and E30.
The Environmental Protection Agency has also approved the use of E15, a 15 percent ethanol blend, in regular cars manufactured in 2001 and newer (FFVs, of course, can also use E15). Using E15 in your newer car is a great way to begin using more ethanol! For more on E15, check out this page developed by the National Corn Growers Association.
