To run E85 the car needs a hardened fuel system, i.e Gas tank to injectors. Check the manual, if it does not say you can- DON'T! You would not get as good mileage anyway on E85.

Good luck, Neddy

Right, and the reason why you get worse mileage with E85 is because there is less energy per gallon of fuel than there is with gasoline. Conversely, this is the primary reason why diesel's do better than gasoline, because diesel packs MORE btu's per gallon.
