Subject: Flex-Fuel Vehicles Can Help Decrease Foreign-Oil Addiction

RE: [URL=  ] Read the article[/URL]


I own a flex fuel 1999 Ford Ranger Pickup Truck. I didn't need a "Mandate from Congress" to buy it.  The following is a quote from the owner’s manual.


"If your vehicle is not serviced in accordance with flexible fuel vehicles procedures, damage may occur and your warranty may be invalidated."


Unfortunately the only flex fuel ethanol available is made from Corn.  Congress has already funded research to consider cellulosic ethanol from Saw grass and switch grass, but it is not yet available.  You can watch our President lead a panel discussion on this program.

I took the flex fuel V6 Engine out of my Ranger Pickup truck and replaced it with an electric motor and 12 Batteries.


If you want foreign oil independence, this is the way to go.


Plug-in, we have the technology, and the NiMH powered RAV4EV is the proof.  This Battery Electric vehicle is being driven by hundreds of owner drivers over the last tent years.  Many of these vehicles have over 100,000 miles on the original batteries.
