i take it the factory is not our own national "petroliam" company right? if so, they would push it rather than CNG to the taxis hehe

if pushing E85, 2 of our GLC company will suffer hohoho because
  1. no one will use petrol anymore haha
  2. no one will by petrol powered car, be it normal or range-Xtender equipped ones... only SAAB and a few small cars made in Brazil.....

...here's a thought... E85 hybrid engine running with KERS! :love:
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.

dis is an american list right? if E85 is standard in malaysia and I got money... would love to use SAAB 9-3 2.0t BioPower :love:
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.
