Today, we take another look at ethanol for our weekly Greenlings post. You’ve probably noticed that many vehicles are labeled with a Flex Fuel badge from the manufacturer, indicating that the car or truck is capable of running safely on E85 – a blend of 85-percent ethanol and 15-percent gasoline.

Why? And does your car need any modifications to use this ethanol-infused gasoline? Read on to fine out.
