Probably a silly question... but how do I know if my truck runs the E-85? I have never seen a toyota that has a badge that clearly says "flex fuel E85" like some chevy's. Just curious. a Station right by my house just started carrying the stuff, and it's about 30 cents cheaper than regular. I have a 2010 4x2 Crewmax 5.7. My manual does not say, just describes both engines. Any help is appreciated.

Toyota Flex Fuel Vehicle FAQ The Short answer is no. FF is only offered on 4x4 vehicles. Oh ya and i have tried the E85 and it aint worth the tp i wipe my @ss with.:D And yes the tundra has a FF badge its on the tailgate on the bottom right side it would be next to the 4x4 badge.

This comes from yahoo answers.... Motor trend did a test on this when it first came out.

The typical decrease in mileage when using E-85 is 27%. To calculate your mileage on E-85 take your current mileage and multiply by .27. The number you get from that you will then subtract from your current mpg.

Example: 15mpg (gas)X0.27= 4.05
15-4.05= 11.95mpg (E-85)

Now get the prices for both gas and E-85. Choose a distance for instance how many miles you drive a week. Divide that by your mpg, you'll need to do it twice once with gas mpg and once with E-85 mpg. This will tell you how many gallons you will use for that distance

Example: Distance: 300 miles
Gas mpg: 15mpg
300 miles/15mpg= 20 gallons of gas

Distance: 300 miiles
E-85 mpg: 11.95mpg
300 miles/11.95mpg= 25 gal (rounded) of E-85

After you figure out how many gallons you will use on gas and on E-85, get the prices for both gas and E-85. Now multiply the cost of gas by the gallons of gas, then do the same with the cost of E-85 and the gallons of E-85. This will tell you how much you will spend on each to go a given distance.

Example: Gas: $3.98
Gallons: 20
$3.98 X 20gal= $79.60

E-85: $3.29
Gallons: 25
$3.29 X 25gal= $82.25

Based on the prices I used, which I went to E85 Prices, and got an average price of both gas and E-85. It is cheaper to use gas. They also have a calculator on their website that you can use to calculate what is cheaper.

everyone knows E85 is junk. dont use it. FF vehicles are the worst waste of technology and development.
