    Actually most cars can run E85, The list of cars is quite big.
    E85 Compatible Vehicles - Flex-fuel Vehicle List

    The main concern is that the fuelling system is not alcohol tolerant.

    Unfortunately, majority of cars in malaysia not alcohol tolerant, that's why v-power malaysia didn't introduce the ethanol version of V-power (now no longer sold, they sell the same stuff we have here now)

    But actually any car can be converted to run E85, since there is no need for extreme engine redesign, just the fuelling system only.

    Actually there's a lot of good diesel cars out there, but as long as our diesel fuel grade is shitty, don't expect diesel cars to have a market here.
