I have had only experiences with GM vehicles in general. I can confirm what others are reporting here, even without a conversion, they respond very well to using blended ethanol. I was able to go up as high as a bit above 50%, but found that the gas mileage was best when using around 35%.


This (blending) is obviously not an issue with a conversion.


Luckily conversions are out there. Car manufacturers are not interested in FlexFuel vehicles. The oil industry is huge, imagine what would happen if you go green like Brazil.



Don't touch a running system!

So here we are in 2018, and it looks like GM has almost completely abandoned E85 as a fuel. 


I am now at about 75K on my 2013 Buick turbo Regal, and its time to start thinking about what my next car should be. 


I had been hoping to see a Chevy Cruise in E85-  as you may recall, back around 2010, the GM mantra was that 50% or more of cars would be felx-fuel by 2012. 


And then everything fell off a cliff. 


You may remember we had some discussion about GM saving the cost of an alcohol sensor, and therefore some said that wasn't possible to meet EPA requirements with a stock Cruze- 


Has anybody here done a conversion on the 1.4 turbo engine of the Chevy Cruze?     Or tried running E85 in a turbo Cruze? 

Looking for experiences
