Recommended Posts

 

The Sonic 1.6 E85 is the first FFV (Flex-Fuel Vehicle) in its segment. It is capable of running on pure benzene (E0) up to gasoline with 85 percent ethanol (E85). In addition to components with improved and hardened materials to handle the characteristics of ethanol, the Sonic 1.6 also comes with an engine management system with the flexibility to alter operational settings such as fuel-flow rate, ignition timing and spark advance, depending on whether pure gasoline, E10, E20 or E85 is used.

 

The four-cylinder 1.6-liter engine – features DOHC (Double Overhead Camshafts) and 16 valves, producing 115 hp at 6,000 rpm and 155 Nm at 4,000 rpm. With DCVC(Double Continuous Variable Camphasing), higher outputs and torque characteristics can be achieved over a wider engine revolution band, while enhancing fuel efficiency and reduced emissions.

why why why... I mean I know... margin. But come on GM, even if people in this country can't see through the smog of the oil industry RIGHT NOW, fuel choice is bound to become important before too long. If you can do it with the 6 cyls and even some of the larger 4s you can do these here too.
