Chicago Auto Show Pushes E85 Vehicles

chrysler1gmlogo150This week at the Chicago Auto Show, a wide array of vehicles are being displayed; many of which are alternative fuel vehicles. Even though the price of gasoline is much lower than in past months, the CAFE rule that mandates auto manufactures average 35 mpg for their fleet of vehicles still applies, meaning more vehicles are being offered with an alternative fuel-capable engine.

General Motors is displaying 15 of its 20 vehicles available with a flexible fuel engine. Both Chrysler and Ford have also displayed many of their E85 compatible vehicles. All three automobile manufacturers have promised to produce more and more vehicles with this E85 capable engine in years to come.ford_logo
