Thanks ... Ford, like Chevrolet, has produced a flex fuel engine for twelve years. The problem is, other than municipalities, very few people will buy one. Both company's engines will run on ethanol, natural gas or propane. You cannot even tell the difference in the driving experience. Ford also spent literally millions advertising the engine ... and was ignored. In 1995, They had plans for half the vehicles sold to have this engine.

Now the general public wants a scapegoat as to why we are so dependent on foreign oil.

EDIT ... Would anyone like to guess how much this optional engine costs ?

To tell you the truth I am the only one I know that runs a flex fuel vehical.As far as performance goes I can't tell the difference.Mileage is pretty close to the same too.

I believe Chrysler also produced some flex fuel engines.

The flex-fuel engine has the identical performance as does the standard fuel engine ... will run to 200,000 miles easily, and cost ......... ZERO. It is a NO CHARGE option.

Snakeyes ... The reason it did not get more notice, is we tend to not care when things are rolling.
