A team at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln has investigated the long-term adaptability and economic feasibility of non-flex-fuel vehicles—vehicles designed to use fuel blends containing 85% ethanol (E85) or less—to consume a 30% ethanol (E30) fuel blend. An open-access paper on their work is published in the journal Fuel. They also collected data on the average mileage per gallon for each fuel type to explore the economic feasibility of utilizing E30.
