Is your car a Flex-Fuel Vehicle?
Flex-fuel vehicles (FFVs) can run on gasoline, ethanol (blends up to E85), or any combination of the fuels, in the same tank. But how do you know whether you’re driving an FFV?
Some models have a flex-fuel badge — like the one pictured above — attached to the vehicle somewhere, most likely the back, labeling it as flex-fuel. Since 2006, FFVs have had yellow gas caps or a yellow ring around the place where you put the pumping nozzle. There might be a sticker inside the fuel door, and the owner’s manual also should clearly state which fuel types are approved for your vehicle.
