Could it be? Toyota is taking a page from a book by General Motors and other U.S. automakers by announcing plans to offer flex-fuel vehicles that run on E85 fuel or gasoline by 2008. Toyota had resisted the urge up until now, due to the risk of fuel corroding the rubber engine seals, but the company isn't exactly one to stay out of an alternative fuel party for very long. Initially, the Japanese carmaker will offer the models in ethanol-happy Brazil, and rather than announce plans to expand into the U.S., Toyota suggested that Americans switch to blends of fuel with 10 percent ethanol (which most traditional gasoline engines can handle), making the gasoline savings more widespread.
