Question 2001 F150 SCREW 4X4 E85 Conversion Kit

Hello all. And thanks for happy birthday emails.

I drive a 2001 F150 SCREW 4X4 and absolutley love it. Problem? It costs almost $100.00 to fill the tanks in California. I don't think it's a FLEX Fuel vehicle because it's a 2001. However at $4.19.00 a gallon for gasoline, converting it to flexfuel maybe prudent. Has anyone done that yet to thier F150 or know how about much it would cost? Thanks.

James

5.4L FFV engines have been around since 1998. Run your VIN number with the dealership and they might be able to tell you for sure.....or just check the owners manual.

on that note, here in florida there are 12 E85 stations and all of them are on govt facilities. E85 contains ethanol and requires more energy to burn at that concentration while the octane rating is higher. The net effect is poor gas mileage.

x2 + shorter engine life and other problems due to the inefficient higher octane fuel. Is the E85 even cheaper, if so it is only because of government subsidies because the corn costs more than the crude - my dad work in the bio-fuels division at Chevron for six years . I'm not a big fan of E85, but bio-diesel that stuff is a different story that is a good product. I would suggest trying to make your truck more efficient rather than a fuel system switch. For example, invest in a new intake, exhaust, chip/programmer, and throttle body.
