Our patrol Crown Vic's were "Flex-fuel" cars but our Mechanics threatened any of us if we put ever put ethanol in them. They said the motors would only last about 50-60K due to corrosion and high heat.
When I asked why we would pay for Flex-fuel cars I was told because the city got a tax break for having a "eco-friendly" fleet.
