2012 Ford Focus will be E85

Recommended Posts

How long has this been up?  ???

 

2012 Focus FFV

 

 

Had to be just in the last 2 weeks because I checked Fueleconomy.gov before I updated the pages http://e85vehicles.com/e85-ford.html  and they didnt have it then..nor did Ford (well not a definitive anyway thats why I didn't list )

 

 

Anyway..nice to see the Focus FFV rolling out

I think digit #9 on the VIN tells for sure.  I'll check...

 

 

--Edit--  I was close .  Digit  7 & 8 are body & engine type, #9 is a check digit.    I think #7 has to be a "K"

 

I found some examples of FFV Foci on Autotrader. By comparing VINs from local cars and the FFVs that are quite a ways away. The #7 digit for FFV is "C" while Gasoline only is a "F."

 

No wait that is transmission model type. 8th VIN is engine/fuel on Fords.

 

I don't know... :D

The 8th digit is definitely the engine VIN, but on the Focus I haven't seen one VIN that is different than 2. The manufacture date isn't in the VIN so we can't check for ones made after 1/15/12.
