ROCHESTER, MI – As automakers try to get more ethanol-capable vehicles on the road, they are warning consumers not to use an E-85 ethanol blend in conventional vehicles or try to convert their vehicles to use E-85, according to the Associated Press. About 5 million vehicles currently run on E-85 in the United States. G.M., Ford, and DaimlerChrysler say they are capable of ramping up E-85-capable vehicle production quickly as long as consumers are able to buy the fuel. About 685 of the nation’s 165,000 fueling stations sell E-85, according to the Associated Press report.
