CAN I USE E85 FUEL

BASED ON MY VIN, MY TRUCK IS A FLEX FUEL TRUCK. CAN I USE THE YELLOW HANDLE FUEL NOZZLE THAT SAYS NOT FUEL, E85 ONLY?
IF I CAN USE THIS, WHAT ARE THE PROS AND CONS OTHER THAN IT IS LIKE 30 CENTS PER GALLON LESS THAN UNLEADED IN MY AREA

You will get worse gas mileage running E85 as compared with the usual 10% stuff. In my brief experience with it and from what others tell me it costs less, but you burn more, so it's a wash.

You can but trust me.... You don't want to. You'll get very poor gas milage and you will have to clean your fuel intake system much more than normal. If you ask me it's not worth the few cents per gallon you'll be saving.

That's been my experience also. Not worth it!
