If you purchase a flexible fuel vehicle, it is your choice what fuel you fill it up with. The next time you take a ride in a car, look at the gas station signs to see if E85 is a choice for fuel. You will notice that not all gas stations sell E85, and in some areas of the country, you may not be able to find any gas stations that sell E85.
