But understand that if the Flex Fuel vehicle being driven was optimized for ethanol (Flex Fuel) enriched fuel it would be cleaner, longer lasting mechanically, perform better and get better mileage than if running on gasoline. Problem today with Flex Fuel vehicles is that they are optimized for gasoline more readily available.

E85, or flex fuel, is a blend of 85% ethanol and 15% gasoline that can be used in vehicles specially designed to run on it – as well as regular gasoline. ... The average price of a gallon of gas is about $3.54, according to AAA. So if your car can run on flex fuel as well as gasoline, the choice seems clear … but it's not.
