There are more than 22 million flex fuel vehicles (FFVs) on the road in the United States, according to the Renewable Fuels Association (RFA). FFV run on a blend of up to 85 percent ethanol (E85).

To make it easier for auto owners to tell if their vehicle is an FFV, RFA recently released a brochure with a list of all of the FFV models from model year 1998 through model year 2018.

“There are more than 4,000 retail stations throughout the U.S. that offer E85 or other ethanol flex fuel blends, and that number grows each week,” Robert White, RFA vice president of industry relations, said. “This new brochure aims to raise consumer awareness about what vehicles are capable of running on ethanol flex fuels. We want consumers to understand what fuel they can use in their vehicles, and how to find that fuel. As the availability of ethanol flex fuels continues to expand, many consumers are seeing E85 for the first time. This updated brochure will help ensure consumers that want to use higher ethanol blends know which vehicles and model years are FFVs.”

General Motors has the most FFVs for 2018 with 13 models. Ford has 11, and Fiat Chrysler Automobiles has seven.
