no. pretty sure the manual say no more than 10% or 15% ethanol but I'm too lazy to run out to the truck and grab it to check. The US companies only make everything E85 because the only way they can meet their fleet mileage requirements is with the credits they get for being E85 compatible.

Not sure about the titan but I doubt it.

Pretty sure the only places E85 is cheaper is in the corn belt or anywhere they subsidize it. Then again I dont think there are even any gas stations that sell E85 in Maine.

I was told by the dealer we could run it. BUT - I haven't looked into it and have only checked the window sticker, which makes no mention of it. I don't have the OM handy right now either.

Okay did a brief web search - the Titan can run it as of 2005, and the Armada will be a FFV in 2007, but I'm pretty sure we can't do it.

Thanks for the replys
the reason I asked is, rumor has it that walmart is going to try to corner the market for it's sale By opening stations in all its stores. and that might drive down the cost.
That company is fricking smart with the mid east going to you know what in a hand basket the term buy american has a hole knew meaning LOL

Walmart buys so much foreign crap that its not funny. And the big 3 only have a very small percentage of vehicles that can use E85.

And Sams Club already has gas stations..... Sams Club is Walmart!
