That wasn't my point. Someone came on here asking a technical question looking for answers. He wasn't looking for an inquisition on his employment or driving habits.

They're government fleet vehicles, and nearly all of them are flex fuel. Over the years I've had a Dodge Dakota 4.7L, 3.6L Grand Caravan, 2.0L DI Ford Focus, and a 3.5L N/A F-150. I notced...

We're supposed to use E85 in our fleet vehicles whenever available, and as the driver I prefer it. Much higher octane, and noticeably more power on the newer vehicles. :-drink

I certainly do. Yes Fluid Film can be washed off, but in my experience it doesn't come off quickly. I wash my vehicles normally even with fluid film applied, and by the end of winter I can always...

I've run ethanol-free when it was available at a competitive cost from a local gas station, but I never noticed any tangible benefit. Remember that ethanol has ~70% of the energy of gasoline, and so...

You might find small differences between years, but nothing that can't be removed from the old engine and installed on the replacement. Everything from 2001-present should be compatible.
