Flex fuel vehicle

What makes a vehicle "Flex Fuel" ?
I have a 2000 Ranger that is one. Is it the two extra cats in the Y pipe?
I have a broken weld where the Y pipe meets the cat flange, and was wondering if I could replace it with a different Y pipe for NY standards.

Any thoughts?

44 looks and no feed back? I could understand if this was a Hyundai and you guys didn't speak Korean, but............. It's a Ford truck! Think I should move this to the Cali thread?

Flex fuel means the truck can run on gas or E85, when it comes to the cat question I have no idea lol.

Thanks Dennis, yeah I get that it can run on ethanol also. (Not around here tho)
Was in hopes that someone with a inspection cert could help me out.

Frank, you have to go through the sniffer down there. And technically, what came on the truck has to stay on the truck - no deviation from OEM. That was snuck on the books probably before you were born ( LOL) but,not really enforced. The OBD 2 would probably pick up the missing cats. Is there an O2 sensor there? If so I think your stuck with it. If not, you could take a chance but, the sniffers might pick it up. Darned if you do, darned if you don't.

Thanks George, guess I'll pull it and have it welded. I'll bet that pipe ain't cheap.
