Flex fuel engines, or flexible fuel engines, refer to engines that are designed to run on any combination of gasoline and ethanol. Think of it as the middle ground between hybrids and conventional gasoline-powered vehicles. Some drivers want performance features that more closely resemble gasoline-powered vehicles but without the higher costs.

There are a few benefits to flex fuel vehicles. First and foremost is the effect it has on the environment. Since ethanol burns cleaner than gasoline, you’ll be leaving a smaller carbon footprint on the earth. You’ll still be using gasoline, of course, but less of it. With this comes a lower cost as well, as ethanol is less expensive than gasoline. You can feel proud that you’re supporting American businesses too, because unlike oil which is primarily imported from the Middle East, ethanol is made from corn and sugar cane which is made right here in the United States.
