..... with the note that the car "can use regular gasoline in an emergency..." ::)


i like it.


I like it too but as we all know gasoline isn't equivalent to E85 so what might be better...

"can use regular gasoline in an emergency, but performance will suffer when using gasoline..."

The only problem is that it is on base so it appears that it won't be available to the general public. I'm surprised it took them this long. At what is now joint base Lewis-Mchord they have had their own E85 pumps for about a decade, years before there were any public pumps in this area.  I'm also surprised that they have an outside contractor operate their pumps instead of owning and operating them like is done at many other gov't locations. However since it is a private supplier that operates lots of stations IF they can get a reasonably priced supply in large enough volumes then they may expand it to more of their operations, which would be good.

I'd like to see Growth Energy make a push in this state... make a deal with the rental fleets to put in a blender pump at the main airport... have all FFVs filled at the airport with e85, along with literature on the fuel, and maps showing where it can be purchased, with the note that the car "can use regular gasoline in an emergency..." ::)

Great way for the ethanol industry to expose large number of tourists to FFVs and e85!

The great state of Hawaii is finally going to have E85 available to a tiny proportion of its vehicles:

When I was there in 2008 on vacation, I saw hundreds of rental vehicles that were flex fuel capable.
